a minor parallax is a solo exhibition by Singaporean artist Hazel Lim. Making inference to a disjointed chord, or a slight shift in perception, a minor parallax is Hazel’s explorations of colours through the interplay of paper foldings, textual constructions, and the periodic table. This solo exhibition showcases her fascination with natural phenomena: from the enigmatic parallax errors and shimmering refractions to the elusive Fata Morgana, and the mystique of the horizon in landscapes. Within the paper tapestries, she crafts planar and sinuous forms of colours using modular paper origami, with each fold unveiling a delicate dance between light and shadow. Meanwhile, in the pages of the origami books, she weaves and conjures tales of painterly pigments.
a minor parallax extends an invitation to immerse in a kaleidoscope of possibilities, where each artwork offers a unique vista and invites exploration from various angles. Through the works, the exhibition opens doors to diverse interpretations, inspiring the visitors to embrace multiple points of view.
