Sunfade: a room of one’s own (2012)

(Installation, Work)

“Lock up your libraries if you like; but there is no gate, no lock, no bolt that you can set upon the freedom of my mind.”

— Virginia Woolf, A Room of One’s Own

As Virginia Woolf wrote: “A woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction”. This installation in Lim’s former studio was the first iteration of an ongoing project documenting feminism and its architectures, a 2012 installation titled Sunfade at Schoolhouse Studios, part of Melbourne Festival’s Place of Assembly exhibition.
