Specter in the Gate
Grand Central Art Center, Santa Ana, California

Specter in the Gate presents an opportunity to delve into the historical progression of political, economic, and cultural machines, anchoring its narrative in a pivotal yet often forgotten event: the 1906 burning of Chinatown, located adjacent to the former Santa Ana City Hall. The work of Hings Lim is driven by the utilization and notion of perspective machines – technology such as cameras, projectors, and mappings. These mediums extend beyond mere technological use; they act as conduits through which the multifaceted layers of history and memory are examined and presented.

Inflaming Machines
island gallery, New York

Drawing upon phantasmagoria and nonhuman presences via what the artist calls a “dilation” of everyday technical objects, Lim reimagines our changing socio-cultural relations to “technology”— ancient and imagined—and the performativity of such apparatuses via experiments in materiality. Lim offers the ghostly as a metaphor for in-betweenness in his practice: singular, monumental, and austere forms wax and wane, collapse, ignite and even burn away. The notion of “inflaming”, or burning, further alludes to a shift towards ecological and environmental concerns in Lim’s practice; the detritus of machines, human consumption, to the burning of land, minerals, fuel, and time.

In the Fire
Gerald Moore Gallery, London

In the Fire brings together works by Hings Lim, Veronika Neukirch and Pam Su at Gerald Moore Gallery’s Ground Floor exhibition space. Fire and heat are crucial to our existence. The sun, our main source of warmth and light keeps the planet from freezing and plants alive which in turn maintains life. Artists in the exhibition explore fire and light as both nurturing and destructive as well as notions of energy, renewal, and transparency in glass, ceramics, and video works.
