ESC Projects deal with spatial negotiations, transformations and interventions. It revolves around particular locations, contexts and renditions-- whether as flights of the imagination or discharges of the creative spirit. ESCape artists are given the freedom to conceive and visualize new landscapes. To ESCape is to create a 1 day project, 1 day show, 1 day exhibition. It is a new model which evolved from the parallel events we have initiated in the 98B Saturday Market X Future Market @ ESCOLTA. It is an experimental platform for creatives.
Lou Lim (b. 1989) earned her BFA (cum laude) from the University of the Philippines, Diliman with an award for Most Outstanding Thesis in 2011. Her works are primarily concerned with relationships and connections between individuals, their contexts, between objects and visual imagery and what these relations articulate. By creating new contexts for the familiar, she engages with surfaces to see through the surface. Lim has been active in group exhibitions since 2011 and has been selected by the Pavillon Neuflize OBC of Palais de Tokyo in Paris, France to participate in a residency program this coming November. — with Lou Lim at 98B.
