SONG YU LIM

Yulim Song tells her story through the work of stitching using needle and various colored thread instead of brush and color. Naturally exposed needle stitches and embroidery evokes a more intimate and raw emotions towards the audience, conjuring the audience’s own precious memories and nostalgia of the ‘analogue experiences’ of the past days. Through the artworks, Song seems to shyly reveal her stories that could have come out of her secret diary, told to the audience as if to confess. Looking at the artwork alone gives us a peaceful moment’s pause, a break from the busy life, as it shares a glimpse of its meticulous and sincere craftsmanship that almost seem to hold the time to a standstill for a moment. Song is a young artist in her early thirties, having studied painting in Hongik University in Korea and art & space in Kingston University in UK. Song has been constantly selected for major artist residency programs in Korea, and recently finished her residency at Yi Eungro International Residency program in Paris.
