Over all, all over!
6.22 – 8.2, 2017
Tang Contemporary Art is proud to announce that H.H.Lim’s solo exhibition is about to unveil in our new space – The Golden Place Plaza. H.H.Lim’s artistic approach is deeply rooted in his philosophy that defines the possibility of founding a place of art which is not restrained to the traditional genres nor tied to the simple references of painting, sculpture, drawing and pure architecture.
Over all, all over! derives from the artist’s intent to creating through the use of a particular media - the panorama, which is not only a wide and articulated view of what is present and the reality that surround us but also subjected to the personal look of the artist who wonders about uncertainty and questions related to our time. This exhibition functions as a central investigation, that tries through the exhibited works to describe the global storm and the emotional crisis that characterizes our century.
As a Sino-Malaysian artist who has been living in Rome since 1976, H.H.Lim’s own story has developed over the years as a multicultural alphabet, which constantly weaves his work through the connection between the East and West, the tradition and innovation, art and the life etc.
Born on August 1, 1954 in Malaysia, H.H.Lim is a Sino-Malaysian artist. He graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome. Since 1976, he lives and works between Penang and Rome, where he founded in 1990 the artist space Edicola Notte, which hosted interventions of numerous international artists. The connection between image and word, mind and body, are some of the aspects of the heterogeneous artistic research that brings H.H. Lim to continuously probe into the intertextual relationships across oriental and occidental aesthetic languages. He has been exhibited in numerous group and solo exhibitions.
