Eugenia Lim is an Australian artist of Chinese-Singaporean descent who works across video, performance and installation. In her work, Lim transforms herself into invented fictional personas who traverse through time and cultures to explore how national identities and stereotypes cut, divide and bond our globalised world. This 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art and Museums & Galleries of NSW (M&G NSW) initiated touring project presents Eugenia’s most recent body of work, ‘The Ambassador’ series. In this three-part project, Eugenia takes on a Mao-like persona who sits halfway between truth and fantasy – dressed in a gold lame suit and matching bowl haircut. Throughout each of her works, ‘The Ambassador’ takes on new roles in uncovering the Australian-Asian narrative – drilling down into racial politics, the social costs of manufacturing and the role of architecture in shaping society. A 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art and Museums & Galleries of NSW touring exhibition. This project has been assisted by the Australian Government’s Visions of Australia program. Mon – Fri 9am – 5pm Sat 12pm – 4pm Closed Sun and Public Holidays
