Eugenia Lim – The Ambassador

The Ambassador brings together Australian artist Eugenia Lim’s most recent body of work. In this three-part project, Lim transforms herself into the Ambassador, a Mao-like persona who sits halfway between truth and fantasy. She takes on new roles in uncovering the Australian-Asian narrative, drilling down into racial politics, the social costs of manufacturing and the role of architecture in shaping society.
