Lim Sodam is an artist that lives and works in Seoul, Korea, and whose practice revolves around the investigation of visual imagery that resonates through her daily encounters with media, social interactions, and life events. Sodam's paintings and sculptures derive from the artist's subconscious state and present amalgamations of signifiers that become increasingly dynamic the more they overlap and intersect. The artist has used web-based screenshots for many years as a tool to capture erratic thoughts and memories, a practice that has led her to the realisation that she, along with her work, live in a co-habited realm of 'familiarity and oddity.' This notion has continued to influence her work as she explores various mediums and performative interactions.Read More
A recent venture into ceramic sculpture has since broadened her artistic practice while preserving key interests and removing any former dependence on a single material quality. As a result, the artist's approach to art production has extended beyond her former inclinations and instead has begun to question the interactivity associated with three-dimensional endeavors. This focus on physicality and synesthesia within art viewership has propelled Sodam to pursue installations that incorporate the oddity of touch as a complementary component to the more familiar visual experiences she has come to associate with painting.
