Yulim Song studied painting at Hong-ik University and obtained her MA in art and space from Kingston University. Including 3 solo exhibitions, she has been nationally and internationally exhibited along with her artistic contemporaries. Recently, she took the Lee Ungno Residence in Paris, France. And, In 2010 to 2012, she joined the residency program by Kumho Museum in Korea. Yulim Song makes installations using mainly silk and cotton thread. She embroiders alphabets and images, usually on silk fabric, to tell her own stories. The colourful threads in translucent silk background within a simple white frame create dreamlike atmosphere, in which the artist's thoughts or memories seem to be floating around. In opposition, the titles of such works are extremely descriptive about the intricate details of each piece. Her early works mostly showed words or word-like images in monochromatic threads. However, her recent works evoke more specific images or forms. These images and forms are emphasized by and against a background of colourful threads.
