Eugenia Lim - On Demand - Gertrude Glasshouse-040

Eugenia Lim is an artist of Chinese-Singaporean ancestry who works across body, lens, social and spatial practice to explore how migration and capital cut, divide and bond our interdependent, planetary commons. An ongoing strand of practice considers work, collectivity, technology and ethics—and art and capital as strange bedfellows. Often a performer within her own works, Lim invents personas to explore the tensions of the individual within society—the alienation and belonging in a globalised world. Based on unceded lands in the Kulin Nation, Lim has exhibited, screened or performed at the Tate Modern (GBR), LOOP Barcelona (ESP), FIVA (AR), Recontemporary (IT), Kassel Dokfest (DE), Museum of Contemporary Art (AUS), ACCA (AUS), FACT Liverpool (GBR), EXiS (Seoul) and Kunsthal Charlottenborg (DK).

She has been artist-in-residence with the Experimental Television Centre (USA), Bundanon Trust, 4A Beijing Studio (CN), Gertrude Contemporary, and she co-founded CHANNELS Festival. Collaboration, community and artist-led pedagogies fuel Lim’s work as board member at West SpaceComposite Moving Image Agency, artist advisory committee member for NETS Victoria, founding membership of temporal art collective Tape Projects and teaching at the Victorian College of the Arts. Lim is a 2022 Sidney Myer Creative Fellow, and the winner of Kunsthal Charlottenborg Spring’s 2022 Deep Forest Art Land Award.
