Charles Lim Yi Yong is a former Olympic sailor. This background informs his unique sensitivity and interest in the ocean.
Lim’s work encompasses film, installation, sounds, conversations, text, drawing, and photography.
Since 2005, he has been developing a body of works titled SEA STATE, which explores the political, biophysical and psychic contours of Singapore through the visible and invisible lenses of the sea.
The artist’s practice consists of extensive research on the maritime geography of Singapore and its history, examining the impact of mankind on the physical environment that surrounds nature and the interrelationship between nature and technology, land and sea.
