Eugenia Lim is an Australian artist of Chinese-Singaporean descent who works across body, lens, social and spatial practice to explore how national identities, migration and capital cut, divide and bond our interdependent world. 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, LOOP Barcelona, FIVA (Buenos Aires), Recontemporary (Turin), Kassel Dokfest, Museum of Contemporary Art (Syd), ACCA, Next Wave, ACMI, FACT Liverpool, EXiS (Seoul) and Kunsthal Charlottenborg (DK). She has been artist-in-residence with the Experimental Television Centre (NY), Bundanon Trust, 4A Beijing Studio, Gertrude Contemporary, and she co-founded CHANNELS Festival. Lim is a 2022 Sidney Myer Creative Fellow, and the winner of Charlottenborg Spring’s 2022 Deep Forest Art Land Award.
Eugenia Lim studio pays respect to the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung and Boon Wurrung people of the Eastern Kulin Nation on whose unceded sovereign land we live and work. From this place, we contribute to the collective practice of global art and culture. Our work is indebted to the cultural practices and embodied knowledges that have nurtured and shaped the lands, skies and waterways of our home since the beginning of all things. This always was, and always will be, Aboriginal land.
