Ryan Lim Zi Yi is a Singaporean artist currently based in the Hague, Netherlands. His practice is described as attempts to capture specific memories and moments, revolving around observation, replication and documenting encounters and situations in life. His works detaches and re-contextualises these encounters to construct newly formed narratives, characters and compositions that meditate on the relationships we have with the often overlooked areas of reality.


So much is happening and present around us that happens in the corner of our eyes and they go unnoticed. But when we do notice them, what can we do?
