RESEARCH + PRACTICE
Eugenia Lim works across video, performance and installation to explore the formation of nationalism and stereotypes with a critical but humorous eye. Lim invents personas to explore the tensions of an individual within society – the alienation and belonging in a globalised world. Her work has been exhibited internationally at festivals and venues including the Tate Modern, Dark MOFO, Melbourne Festival, Next Wave, GOMA, ACMI, Asia TOPA, HUN Gallery NY, firstdraft, Artereal Gallery, FACT Liverpool and EXiS Seoul. She has been artist-in-residence with the Experimental Television Centre NY, Bundanon Trust, 4A Beijing Studio with Shen Shaomin and the Robin Boyd Foundation. She holds a Bachelor of Media Arts (Honours) RMIT and a Bachelor of Creative Arts, VCA.
Artistic community and the intersection between art and society inform Lim’s wider collaborations: she co-directed the inaugural Channels: the Australian Video Art Festival (2013), is a board member at Next Wave, was founding editor of Assemble Papers (2011–2016) and co-founded temporal art collective Tape Projects (2007–2013).
