Glasgow International 2020

Vanessa Lim Shu Yi

Vanessa Lim’s (b.1993, Singapore) practice mainly pertains to ideas of materiality with a particular focus on the spatial and emotional construction of water in its various forms, both interior and exterior.

Her recent sculptures, textile work and installations have drawn on architectural elements of the swimming pool and coastal management systems to play with conceptions of weight, space and tactile perception. She recently graduated with First Class Honours from Goldsmiths, University of London’s BA (Hons) Fine Art and Art History programme.

Exhibitions include ‘The Concerned Citizen’s Programme’, The Substation, Singapore (upcoming, 2018); ‘OH’ Open House Holland Village, Holland Village, Singapore (2017) & ‘Bought Objects’, Love Unlimited, Voidoid Archive, Glasgow (2016).

Social Event - Curated by Love Unlimited


Taking place in a public swimming pool, Social Event is a sculptural and performance-based event that’s immersive in the most literal sense. Performances will take place in and around the pool. Sculptures will be floating and submerged, with the audience viewing the work from within the water.

The artists respond to the public pool’s political history, the context of health and leisure, as well as issues concerning the body and gender by making diverse works which require activation through audience participation, both directly and through more subtle means.
