Sim Chi Yin
won The 2020 Jimei x Arles Discovery Award

Artist Sim Chi Yin 沈绮颖 won The 2020 Jimei x Arles Discovery Award. Congratulations! With a prize of RMB100,000 and she will be invited to hold a solo exhibition at the 2021 Les Rencontres d'Arles in France!
The curator Liu Xiao said in an interview: The two works “Most People Were Silent” and “The Shifting Sands” on display are traces of reality left by the modern national and global processes, like advancing historical machines. It is a thick document of heavyweight history. Sim Chi Yin's works are the aesthetic integration of landscape aesthetics and world political and economic imagery. Through historical events, changing reality and symbolic meaning, can we re-appraise "scenery" (landscape painting and landscape photography) as an aesthetic tradition and content, and can there be new enlightenment?
