“Sea State” by Singapore-based artist Charles Lim Yi Yong, commissioned for the Singapore Pavilion for the 56th Venice Biennale and curated by Shabbir Hussain Mustafa, will be presented at the NTU CCA Singapore from April 30th.
A former national sailor who competed in the 1996 Olympics representing Singapore and Team China in the 2007 America’s Cup, he co-founded the seminal net-art collective “tsunamii.net” which exhibited at the prestigious dOCUMENTA11. Lim’s work encompasses film, installation, sounds, conversations, text, drawing, and photography.
For over a decade, Lim’s ongoing project “Sea State” examines the biophysical, political and psychic contours of Singapore through the visible and invisible lenses of the sea. “Sea State” is an in-depth inquiry by an artist that scrutinises both man-made systems, opening new perspectives on our everyday surroundings, from unseen landscapes and disappearing islands to the imaginary boundaries of a future landmass. Several symposium related to this exhibition will be held, so please check it out.
