Jason Lim’s work is guided by the elements of nature; earth, water, air, fire, and space. Drawing inspirations from these elements, he proposes to unveil the complex inter-relationships between nature and the world around us. Lim’s work is focused on the interaction between body, matter and spirit. He employs long meditative processes of repeated actions as a strategy to manifest works in the form of sculpture, photography, film, and performance art.
