About the artist
Shan Shan Lim (b.1993) is a multidisciplinary artist and designer based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Her works draw inspiration from a spectrum of cultures from her childhood in Malaysia, schooling in India and her bachelor’s in London. She specialised in weave and print at Central Saint Martins, earning a degree in Textile Design. She returned home to Malaysia where she founded her eponymous design studio in 2017.
Her most notable exhibitions include The Back Room (2020), Deck, Singapore (2020) and Bank Negara Malaysia (2018). She was also selected for the Art Girl Rising residency at Sepat House (2019).
"In the midst of the lockdown, the present became a blur, the future loomed uncertain and the past was under review. During this time, Kush Linfield and Shan Shan Lim created a series of collaborative paintings titled ‘Shared Memory’. Each piece was first drawn by Kush and then given colour by Shan Shan. They reflect distant memories that reemerged during this introspective time."
