BeAdvisors present Hannah Lim - Shards of Fire

Golden Shower Collectors Members' Club presents “Shards of Fire”, a solo exhibition by the Chinese-Singaporean and British artist Hannah Lim (1998), based in London.

Hannah Lim’s practice is built on her mixed cultural identity and the Western colonial history, from the 18th-century design of Chinoiseries to nowadays cultural appropriation dynamics. Hannah Lim reimagines the relationship between East and West traditions more appropriately thanks to the realisation of furniture-like sculptures inspired both by the enchanted narrative and background of Classical Chinese literature and anthology and the Western mythology.

By analysing this strict relationship between feminine and cultural identities and art, Hannah investigates how ornament is connected with her artistic style and cultural and womanhood identity. The ornamentalisation and flamboyance of Hannah’s work represent a counter-narration for fixed notions of identity and race and a resolution attempt to balance the confusion and struggle lived by those from mixed cultural backgrounds.
