Charles Lim Yi Yong



Singaporean artist Charles Lim’s ‘sea states’ series investigates his country’s ongoing geographic expansion into the surrounding seas.

Here, space is in constant flux but never infinite. SEA STATE 6 ventures 130 metres into deep sea to explore Southeast Asia’s first underground liquid hydrocarbon storage facility, the Jurong Rock Caverns. As a former Olympic sailor, Lim’s camera reveals an intimacy with water and a simultaneous awareness of its all-consuming enormity.
