Choong-Sup
Lim



Biography

Né en 1941 à Jincheon, Corée

Le processus artistique de Choong-Sup Lim examine le lien entre culture et nature. Ses œuvres sont composées de différents matériaux souvent avec des objets trouvés par terre dans les rues de New York. Cette approche lui permet d’explorer les bruits de notre culture à laquelle il répond avec une tranquillité naturelle et simple.

Pendant sa carrière Monsieur Lim a participé au sein des expositions prestigieuses au Samsung Museum of Modern Art (Seoul), le Smithsonian Institution-Hirshorn Museum (Washington DC) ainsi d’avoir ses œuvres dans la collection permanant du National Museum of Contemporary Art (Seoul) et le Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York). En 2010 il a été le récipiendaire du prix de sculpture Se-Joong Kim.

The artistic process of Choong-Sup Lim transcends the divide between nature and culture and, as such, his work explores the noise of modern culture with an appreciation for reflective tranquility.

Throughout his career, Mr. Lim has participated in prestigious exhibitions at the Samsung Museum of Modern Art (Seoul), the Smithsonian Institution-Hirshorn Museum (Washington DC), as well as having works in the permanent collections of the National Museum of Contemporary Art (Seoul) and the Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York). In 2010 he was the recipient of the Se-Joong Kim Sculpture Award.
