The Tales of the Metamorphosis of the Unnamed is an exhibition that brings an overview to the breadth of Geraldine Lim’s budding practice, spanning from drawings to sculpture, as well as early experiments into an NFT artwork of animation and video. A series of recent drawings and paintings are on view, which continue to reflect her characteristic style and motifs of creatures that seem to form a discontinuous chain of enigmatic tales. Her narratives take inspiration from everyday life that innocuously weave together ordinary scenarios with the imagined, expressing a somewhat fantastical and uncanny world of her own. She draws on the developmental stages of frogs to create her creatures and the different environments within flora and fauna that they come to inhabit and metamorphosize. Such metamorphosis is less about physical or ouvert change but psychological and emotional transformation that transpires through the various stories her works tell. These unfolding of these stories seem to be reinforced by the texts displayed throughout the gallery space, which are original writings of Lim’s own. While they do not necessarily relate to specific drawings as pretexts, they reveal the synergetic relationship between and across different mediums within the artist’s creative process, providing a cohesive understanding to Lim’s artistic vernacular.
