Won Ju Lim: Casting Won Ju Lim, Anne, 2017, portrait painting (oil on canvas) on foam, silk pins, adhesive, 20 x 28 inches

Haines Gallery is pleased to present Casting, an exhibition of new and recent works by multimedia artist Won Ju Lim (b. 1968, Gwangju, South Korea; lives and works in Los Angeles, CA). This is Lim’s first solo exhibition with Haines Gallery, and her second in San Francisco, following the successful Raycraft is Dead at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in 2015. One can cast a spell, a net, a form, a vote, a shadow. Casting echoes the multiple meanings of the word, and develops from the artist’s interest in the life and works of Marcel Proust, building upon a range of literary and cinematic sources that were inspired by the French writer. The exhibition comprises a series of lightboxes, paintings, and sculptures, and also sees Lim expanding her practice to include filmmaking for the first time.
