Kim Lim: Sculpting Light

Sculptures, prints and drawings feature in Kim Lim: Sculpting Light, the late artist's first show in Singapore in over three decades. On loan from the Estate, the exhibition focuses on the relationship and dialogue between her printmaking and sculptural practice.

Across the mediums of wood, stone, marble and paper, Lim's sensitivity and respect for each material shaped her approach – what she did in sculpture heavily influenced the way she perceived paper as material and surface, and together with key active agents of light and shadow, Lim sculpted lightness and weightlessness into being.

Against the parallel practices of prominent Western sculptors at the time—Lim's graceful, lightness of touch remains distinct and resolute; her poetic works reveal an aesthetic of simplicity and fluidity, and they write a new narrative for Asian sculptors in the global art sphere.
