H.H. Lim Biography

Lim has practiced art in Rome since 1976 and has remained since, finding himself continuously inspired by the city's energy. A Neo-conceptual artist with a disposition for colossal works, Lim is known to incorporate elements of everyday life into his works, which at times are recycled, repackaged and framed, taking on a different meaning and new life. In the past, Lim's conceptual works have consisted of paintings, installations, performance art as well as recorded video and sound.

Lim plays with the game-like ambiguity and non-accordance between images and languages to reveal the inevitable uncertainty and contradiction in the linguistic function of words and sentences vis-à-vis reality.

Lim has been actively exhibited in a handful of internationally renowned biennales, including the Venice Biennale, the Prague Biennale, the Singapore Biennale, the Istanbul Biennale, Tirana Biennale etc. In addition, Lim also manages to exhibit in UCCA Ullens Center for Contemporary Art in Beijing, GNAM (Galleria nazionale d'arte moderna e contemporanea) Roma, MAXXI (Museo nazionale delle arti del XXI secolo) Roma, Tang Contemporary Art, IVAM (Instituto Valenciano de Arte Moderno) and many other established institutions.
