In her recent sculptures, Qixuan Lim, also known as QimmyShimmy, continues to meld everyday objects with disconcerting elements. Her recent project, created for an upcoming show at Beinart Gallery next month, inserts one of her realistic organs into dumplings. Or as she says: “For those who wonder why your wontons are so wrinkly.” Her sculptures are crafted in polymer clay.
Qixuan Lim, also known as Qimmyshimmy, uses polymer clay to create tiny sculptures depicting infants and body organs. When removed from a singular context and placed into plastic packaging, these items become disturbing suckers, medication, and other types of edible objects. The Singapore-raised artist is currently based in the Netherlands.
