Yun Kima

Yun Kima is a visual artist and designer based in Berlin, born in Seoul, South Korea.

Her interdisciplinary practice encompasses multi-sensory installations, site-specific works, digital drawings, and sculpture. Kima employs contemporary technologies, including AI techniques, CNC, 3D scanning and printing, alongside familiar materials, such as Bronze, plastic or ready-made objects. By blending the industrial production process and conceptual art approaches with a slight notion of science fiction, the artist delves into the complex relationships between altered nature, technology, and our current digitally embedded culture within the framework of late capitalism.

She studied fine art at the Berlin Weißensee School of Art, Art University Kassel and product design at the Seoul National University of Technology. Her work has been showcased in various art spaces, museums and art festivals, including Humboldt Forum Museum, Institut für Alles Mögliches in Berlin, Documenta Halle in Kassel, Delphi space in Freiburg and the Company Studios in Milan.
