IM Suniy
(b. 1971, Daejeon, Korea)

Im Suniy has been working on her mountain scenes for her uneasy view on the modern society’s transformation. She observed Namsan, central mountain in Seoul and analyzed structures and spaces around the place to quantify for its topography. Her topographic sculpture installation is finally photographed with fog for mystic view before printed. Since 2019, She has been working on a large-scale installation with ten old, broken, and life-ending chandeliers from the 1980’s and 1990’s, collected from four different cities. She created a scenario of light that could breathe again by creating light on a chandelier that might have had a splendid past.

IM Suniy received MFA and BFA from Chung-Ang University in sculpture major. Her works have been presented through many local galleries and museums including Arco Art Center, Ilmin Museum of Art, Gana Art Center, Seoul Museum of Art, Zaha Museum of Art, Jeju Museum of Art, Gyeonggi Museum of Modern Art, Songeun Art Apace, Gallery Jandari, Doart Gallery, Space So, Suwon i-Park, Kwanhoon Gallery, and many more. Such notable public collections in Korea include her works as Gyeonggi Museum of Modern Art, Museum of Modern Art in Korea, Seoul Museum of Art, Woomin Art Center, Daegu Art Museum, and Goverment Art Bank in Korea and more.
