Ng Teng Fong Roof Garden Commission: Charles Lim Yi Yong

ABOUT

The third work in the Ng Teng Fong Roof Garden Commission series is SEA STATE 9: proclamation garden by Charles Lim Yi Yong, Singapore’s representative at the 2015 Venice Biennale. The artist completely transforms the Gallery’s roof garden with plants found in reclaimed areas from Changi to Tuas and the Southern Islands, offering not only a greater biodiversity of flora but also an inquiry into Singapore’s history of land reclamation. These narratives will be generated through the plants, whose transplantation, adaptation to survive, and eventual disposal tell the stories of Singapore’s urban and coastal developments. SEA STATE 9: proclamation garden is a work in progress, evolving over the exhibition period as the plants grow.
The Ng Teng Fong Roof Garden Gallery is made possible through a gift by Far East Organization.
