Supporting Artists since 1972

Kenji Lim

Kenji Lim works through sculpture, video, digital collage, installation, and painting to produce objects, animations, and images that operate both collectively and individually.

Lim’s work reflects and refracts the experience of landscape and the natural world through the prisms of culture, myth, philosophy, and the metaphysical; returning the gaze of Western cultural norms through the eyes of other-than-human actors. Partly ecological and archeological, in turns melancholic and tongue in cheek, he navigates alternative modes of seeing, understanding, and interacting with the world and its inhabitants. Lim was born in Singapore in 1980.
