Her focus is tableware design and she is engaged by the food culture of her home country. In response to the challenges of fast-food, she designs elegant garlands to adorn our meals. This manages to sustain an element of ritual in an otherwise homogenous lifestyle.
Her work reminds us that garlands are not only for people, but they are also an important way in which we mark a special occasion by adorning the things around us.
Hyo-Jung Lim is one of the artists in the exhibition Welcome Signs.
