Eugenia Lim is an Australian artist who works across video, performance and installation to explore race, identity and representation with a critical but humourous eye. As an Australian of Chinese-Singaporean heritage, Lim is interested in cross-cultural mythologies - how identity, nationalism and stereotypes are formed. Often the central character in her videos and photographs, Lim "performs identities".
Lim's work has been exhibited internationally at venues including the Tate Modern, GOMA, ACMI, HUN Gallery NY, and FACT Liverpool. She has received a number of Australia Council for the Arts grants and residencies, including a residency at the Experimental Television Centre NY and exchange at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD). In 2015, Lim is working towards the publication of Woman's Work: a room of one's own, an artist book exploring contemporary feminism and architectures, and Yellow Peril, a new body of work exploring the impact of mining and immigration on the Australian identity (Bus Projects, April 2015). In 2012-13, she co-directed the inaugural Channels: the Australian Video Art Festival, and is also the founding editor of Assemble Papers, exploring small footprint living and creativity.
