  • Description: Lim’s solo exhibition Wrapped Future, based on his photographic series under the same name, is a bold and minimalist installation of real and representational borders. A commanding corrugated metal fence blocks access to the majority of the large gallery space, forcing the urban panorama onto the visitor. In the smaller space one relatively quiet photograph of a fence hangs and a new book of the photographic series can also be paged through. Here, isolated to the image, away from their bustling surroundings and ephemeral fate, the fences become permanent, recorded landmarks. As such, what they conceal, and ultimately what they will reveal, can be called into question.
