c3 is pleased to host Eugenia Lim’s lecture in association with WRITING & CONCEPTS.

In this talk Lim explores islands, architecture, earthworks and symbols of exchange, value and power in her work across performance, exhibitions and publishing.

EUGENIA LIM is an Australian artist of Chinese–Singaporean descent who works across video, performance and installation.

In her work, Lim transforms herself into invented fictional personas who traverse through time and cultures to explore how national identities and stereotypes cut, divide and bond our globalised world.

She has exhibited internationally at venues, festivals and fairs that include: Tate Modern, ACCA, GOMA, ACMI, Next Wave, FACT Liverpool, 24HR Art (Darwin), Substation (Singapore), Experimenta, Sydney Contemporary, Melbourne Festival, TINA, Dark MOFO, Bus Projects, West Space and MPavilion.

In 2016, Lim was a resident at Bundanon Trust, 4A Beijing Studio resident, and the Robin Boyd Foundation. In 2018-20, Lim is a Gertrude Contemporary studio artist and in 2019 she is incoming co-director (with Lara Thoms and Mish Grigor) of Aphids.

WRITING & CONCEPTS is a public lecture series and publication reflecting on the relationship between the process of writing and the development of social, political and philosophical questions within contemporary arts and cultural practice. The program is produced by Jan van Schaik, published by ART + AUSTRALIA, and proudly supported by the RMIT Design Hub, RMIT Architecture & Urban Design, the RMIT School of Art, Spring 1883, and MvS Architects.
