Over the duration of ESCAPE from the SEA, artist/designer Jeffrey Lim will walk from one venue to another—alternating directions over different occasions—to install, retrace, and de-install his work, Attachment. He will be marking his trail through the city and tracing parts of Klang River using spools of threads, thus making his journey visible to visitors and simultaneously inviting them to make their own journeys.
