  • Minouk Lim


    Minouk Lim (b.1968, South Korea) works in various media including installation, text, music, video and performance. Lim creates irony through performative forms that defy the definition and boundaries of specific genres. By exploring the conditions of our media environment, Lim’s oeuvre attempts to de-territorialize issues of identity and division aggravated by globalization. Her works employ a wide range of equipment, such as transportation vehicles, thermal imaging cameras, and broadcasting devices, in order to capture and visualize the speed, warmth and emotion of mourning. Her recent solo exhibitions include O Tannenbaum (ASAKUSA space production, Tokyo, Japan, 2018), Mamour_Minouk Lim (Tina Kim Gallery, New York, U.S., 2017) and The Promise of If (PLATEAU Samsung Museum of Art, Seoul, Korea, 2015). Her work has also been in such group exhibitions as La Biennale de Lyon (2019), the Setouchi Triennale (2016), Sydney and Taipei Biennial (2016).
