Line Echoes of melting blue: Lingam. K


Line Echoes of melting blue: Lingam. K

29 Nov 2023 – 25 Mar 2024

Lingam. K is a research and lens-based artist interested in narrating the complexity of our relationship to nature and how it’s tied into culture and the modern world. In 2023, he spent two months in Iceland as part of an artist residency with The Association of Icelandic Visual Artists (SÍM), an extension of his ongoing research into melting glaciers in the Himalayas. Echoes of Melting Blue is the creative outcome of that residency.

Lingam. K has exhibited internationally, including in Iceland, China, Singapore, and Tokyo. He is currently a PhD candidate at RMIT University investigating how “Scientific knowledge (climate change), traditional knowledge, and lived religion can open fresh and new ways of visualising and addressing the glacial melt in the Nepalese Himalayas."
