Choong Sup Lim

New York

Korea Society

Choong Sup Lim is a highly accomplished Korean-born artist who has lived and worked in New York since 1973. His work offers a marked contrast to the notion of materialism so rampantly displayed in the so-called art fairs that have displaced the spiritual concept in art, a concept that Lim understands as indigenous to the culture of his homeland. Luna—Thousand Rivers & Thousand Reflections (2015), a room-size installation, consists of traditional Korean cotton thread (1,000 yards), rice paper (hanji), wax, wood, a kinetic system to move the thread, and a DVD projection. This is a more intimate version of a work that appeared three years ago at the National Museum of Contemporary Art in Seoul. …see the entire review in the print version of January/February’s Sculpture magazine.
