Soonnam Lim is concerned with the idea of writing, and of reading. The red writing she writes to express herself. The transcripted text, often from biblical sources in mirrorwriting, the act of her writing them are the work. The texts are inverted and as such largely uninterpretable, there are also slippages's and unexpected juxtapositions. These small but important shifts reveal her practice and the moments of her life as an artist as she writes, copies, draws the text before her. How we read them is a separate discourse.
