ALL OF THIS IS TEMPORARY
Eugenia Lim, 2020
The kaleidoscopic digital collages of this site-specific commission act as future fossils, positioning us in an imagined time when patriarchy and oppression have all but vanished from living memory.
Here on Queenberry St, we see images of state or self-surveillance; around the corner on Errol St we meet Old Tjikko, one of the world’s oldest living plants.
Eugenia Lim works across video, performance and installation to explore how national identities cut, divide and bond our globalised world. She is co-director (with Lara Thoms and Mish Grigor) of APHIDS and is represented by STATION.
