THESE MOMENTS EXISTED
GRUNWALD GALLERY, BLOOMINGTON
2013

The exhibition was a photography and contemporary jewellery installation created from 2012 to 2013 exploring everyday moments with an air of ambivalence and melancholy.

 

Many people in the developed world currently live in an image-saturated and social media addicted society. Sim is interested in exploring her personal experience of this. These Moments Existed was an attempt to cut through the saturation and find meaning in the everyday, reflecting the here and now.

HORSES FOR COURSES
J STUDIOS, MELBOURNE
2011
 

Horses For Courses was an installation of miniature “horse and jockey” rings portraying the finish of the 2010 Melbourne Cup.

 

Horses For Courses was a celebration of sorts.

 

Hand-crafted like the cup itself, this collection paid homage not to the winner of the race or to the sport itself but instead reflected on the traditions of craft and the small things created to mark celebratory moments in life.

THE TEMPORARY NATURE OF THINGS
SOFA GALLERY, BLOOMINGTON
2008
 

The transcendence presented by the miniature is a special transcendence, a transcendence that erases the productive possibilities of understanding through time. Its locus is thereby the nostalgic. - Susan Stewart

 

The exhibition considered notions of beauty, nostalgia, impermanence, and passing time. Motivated by the deterioration of memory and how this is represented nostalgically through miniature objects, the exploration comprised an installation of jewellery and objects, made one a day, over the course of one year.
