about the installation
Topographies is a solo exhibition by Singapore artist Jason Lim. It presents a series of photographs and a video work created during Jason’s ten-day residency in Kjerringøy, northern Norway last year. The residency programme was part of Kjerringøy Land Art Biennale, which featured twelve international artists and their site-specific nature-altering works developed prior during the residency.
Accompanying the exhibition is an eponymous publication of the photographs accompanied by writings. Designed by Calleen Koh with a contribution by writer Christine Han, the publication was launched on the night of the exhibition opening, and is on sale exclusively at Telok Ayer Arts Club for the duration of the exhibition.
