about the exhibition

Topographies is the name of the exhibition as well as a performance art piece by artist Jason Lim that will take place before the opening of his exhibition at Telok Ayer Arts Club. It evolved from a performance art piece titled Daily Koan that Jason did last year in Kjerringøy, in northern Norway, as part of Kjerringøy Land Art Biennale, which featured twelve international artists and their site- specific nature-altering works developed from a ten-day residency.  Topographies the exhibition will showcase a selection of photographic works created during a 10 days residency at the Kjerringoy Land Art in 2018, during which the artist created more than 150 photographic images inspired by the landscape and natural materials found on site.
