Biographical Text

Charles Lim (b. 1973, Singapore) sees Singapore like no other artist. As a former professional sailor, his senses are keenly attuned to environments we rarely see and to forces most of us do not even notice. His early collaborative project, tsunamii.net, which participated in dOCUMENTA 11 (2002) traced the hidden submarine infrastructure that underpins our global computer networks. After sailing for Singapore in the 1996 Olympics, Lim studied Fine Art at Central Saint Martins School of Art and Design, London, graduating in 2001. His SEA STATE series is an ongoing body of work that has been exhibited at the Dojima River Biennale, Osaka, Japan (2013); Lyon Biennial Rendez-Vous 13 at the Institut d’art contemporain Villeurbanne, France (2013); the Singapore Biennale (2011); Manifesta 7, Trentino-South Tyrol, Italy (2008); Shanghai Biennale (2008). Lim’s moving image works have been screened in international film festivals at Rotterdam, Tribeca and Edinburgh. His multi-award-winning short film, All The Lines Flow Out, premiered at the 68th Venice Film Festival, winning a Special Mention, the first award ever won there by a Singaporean production.
