Charles Lim Yi Yong

Born in Singapore, 1973 and lives in Singapore

Charles Lim Yi Yong graduated from Central Saint Martins School of Art and Design, London with a B.A. in Fine Art (2001). Lim went on to co-found the seminal net art collective,, which participated in Documenta11 in Kassel, Germany (2002). Combining his knowledge of the sea and his love for making images, he then embarked on the SEA STATE series, an ongoing body of work that has been exhibited at Manifesta 7 (2008), the Shanghai Biennale (2008), and most recently at the Singapore Biennale (2011). Lim’s moving image works have been screened at the International Film Festival Rotterdam, the Tribeca Film Festival and the Edinburgh Film Festival. His 2011 short film All The Lines Flow Out premiered at the 68th Venice Film Festival, winning a Special Mention, the first award ever won there by a Singaporean production. The piece has since received three more awards at other international festivals.
