Biography

Hannah Lim makes work in response to Orientalism, the colonial romanticisation of the East, with a particular focus on the eighteenth-century aesthetic trend of ‘Chinoiserie’. Through the production of anthropomorphic, intricate sculptures, that oscillate playfully between function and ornament, Lim’s practice engages with cultural exchanges between the Europe and South and South-East Asia. Lim seeks to reclaim and reimagine a dialogue between East and West, while examining the complex configurations of power and identity conferred historically by ‘Chinoiserie’.

Hannah Lim studied Sculpture at The University of Edinburgh before going on to complete her MFA at the Ruskin School of Art, Oxford. She has exhibited widely across the UK, including solo shows at Commonage Projects (2022), and Edinburgh Printmakers (2022). She has also exhibited in several group exhibitions, including Bloomberg New Contemporaries at South London Galleries (2022). She is the recipient of multiple awards, such as the Hospitalfield Residency (2021), the Home Residency by Ronan Mckenzie and Cob Gallery (2021), selected for RSA New Contemporaries (2022) and is currently Pangolin London’s 2022-2023 Artist in Residence.

She lives and works in London
