Jia Qi Lim – ‘Urban: Backyard’

iPreciation Gallery, Singapore

21 November – 10 December 2022

When one thinks of “nature”, we often visualise spaces untouched by humans. In a dense city like Singapore, most nature we see every day are intertwined with our urban spaces. Occasionally, one can observe plants emerging through hidden corners like backyards of residential areas, cracks on concrete floors or creepers using the walls of pillars as scaffolding to climb and grow. However, nature is not alone in trying to survive our urban environment. Every so often, we observe infrastructure being built in a way that preserves existing trees and designated spots allocated for the growth of flora and fauna.

‘Urban: Backyard’ is a series of works based on documentation of everyday spaces in Singapore. It aims to highlight this unique relationship between urban spaces and nature. Through the use of paint on carved wood panels, Lim hopes to shine a light on the mini garden in every corner of our neighbourhood.
