Committed to bringing more emerging talent to its stable, Yeo Workshop presents a solo exhibition of Geraldine Lim. It marks the first of an ongoing series of exhibitions that will spotlight local emerging artists. Lim addresses creativity and mental health within human’s relationships through non-human and imagined life forms, illustrated against backdrops of flora and fauna of Singapore. Her work is not only resonant with our post-pandemic world, but also echoes similar themes and concerns that have been highlighted at the 59th Venice Biennale, The Milk of Dreams.
Tales of the Metamorphosis of the Unnamed is an exhibition that brings an overview to the breadth of Geraldine Lim’s budding practice, spanning from drawings to sculpture, as well as early experiments into an NFT artwork of animation and video. A series of recent drawings and paintings are on view, which continue to reflect her characteristic style and motifs of creatures that seem to form a discontinuous chain of enigmatic tales. Her narratives take inspiration from everyday life that innocuously weave together ordinary scenarios with the imagined, expressing a somewhat fantastical and uncanny world of her own. Tales of the Metamorphosis of the Unnamed evokes a wide-eyed innocence that hints at something grotesque, yet paradoxically strives towards a sense of solace in her peculiar and fabled world.
