Lim Sokchanlina

Working with photography, video, installation, and performance the multidisciplinary practice of Lim Sokchanlina (b. 1987, Cambodia) scrutinizes the developments in the social, political, cultural, economic, and environmental landscape of Cambodia brought about by a rampant process of modernisation. Recent solo and group exhibitions include Sunshower: Contemporary Art from Southeast Asia 1980s to Now, Mori Art Museum, Tokyo, Japan (2017); Urban Aspiration, The Physics Room Contemporary Art Space, Auckland, New Zealand (2016); and Urban Street Nightclub, SA SA BASSAC, Phnom Penh, Cambodia (2013).

Lim is committed to a number of community-based projects that foster research, education, and collaborative methodologies in Phnom Penh. In 2007, he co-founded the collective Stiev Selapak which, in 2010, evolved into the artist-run space Sa Sa Art Projects. He also collaborated to establish Analogue Prints Laboratory, the first public-access darkroom in the capital of Cambodia.
