Ju Young Kim

Ju Young Kim (b. 1991, South Korea)

The artistic practice of Ju Young Kim, born in 1991 in Seoul, South Korea, encompasses installations and objects using materials such as glass, ceramics, metal, plastic and transport modules, the components of transport systems of aircraft and cars, for example, as well as elements that include landscapes and anonymous objects. The visual aesthetic of her works is characterized by the precision of form, color ambiguity, and often surreal elements. In her conceptual explorations, expressed in past and current series, she examines the relativity of space and time from the perspective of a transcontinental traveler. She investigates transitional states expressed through transformations of various physical and symbolic attributes that mostly occur in the so-called „transit zones“ of our lives.
