Geraldine Lim

b. 1996, Singapore
Lives and works in Singapore

Geraldine Lim is an artist based in Singapore who is interested in the psychological context of social alienation and the threats of the non-conforming and the strange. Working primarily with soft sculpture and drawing, she explores ideas of the in-between and the transgressive within objects and forms.

Her current practice is a world building exercise involving recurring amorphous creatures that live in the realm of fantasy, working with fragmented narratives that navigate through the process of introspection that are informed by her surroundings and experiences- whether in reality or in dreams. She enjoys combining influences from science fiction, fantasy and myths to create drawings of stills in her ideal phantasmic world and writing short stories of them.

Prior to pursuing a MA Fine Arts at LASALLE College of the Arts, Geraldine was trained in painting and was the recipient of the People’s Choice Award for Cliftons Art Prize in 2016. Her animated film, ‘Ouch’, was nominated for the National Youth Film Awards in 2018.
