Singapore artist Charles Lim’s work All The Lines Flow Out has been selected for the 68th Venice Film Festival (31st August to 10th September 2011), to be in competition in the Orizzonti (New Horizons) category. All The Lines Flow Out is the first Singaporean short film to compete in the Orizzonti section, which honours the experimental and more artistic films.
Paolo Bertolin, Consultant, Venice Film Festival praised the film, saying : “All The Lines Flow is a stunning symphony of mesmerizing images that seduces the viewer and leads him to the most unexpected and unusual visual travellogue of Singapore. Through its images and sounds, Charles Lim's film goes well beyond the territory of representation and ventures into the daring fields of pure experience."
All The Lines Flow Out was originally conceived by Lim as a video installation and was presented at the Singapore Biennale 2011. In the video, the artist takes the viewer on a poetic journey through the drainage system of Singapore..The Singapore Art Museum has since acquired the video work.
