  • Artist Story
  • Born in Seoul, Korea, in 1971, Siyeon Kim received her BFA and MFA in Sculpture from Ewha Women’s University in Seoul and MFA in Fine Arts from School of Visual Arts in New York. As one of the leading Korean female artists in mid-career, Kim has ardently developed her distinctive artistic language through various mediums, including installation and photography. With her background in sculpture, Kim’s approach to photography has provided a uniquely poetic method of interpretation that intentionally deals with the ephemeral environments of her creation. The exceptional sensibilities of Kim’s work reminds us of the American visual artist, Ann Hamilton, whose work revolves around large-scale multi-media installations noted for bringing out poetic responses from the audience.

    She has had solo exhibitions at DOOSAN Gallery (New York) in 2012, 16 Bungee (Seoul) in 2011, Foil Gallery (Tokyo) in 2010, and Gallery EM (Seoul) in 2008. She has also exhibited at a variety of museums and gallery group shows, including Seoul Museum of Art (Seoul) in 2009, The Annex Gallery (Kuala Lumpur) in 2009, PS122 Gallery (New York) in 2008, Ssamzie Space (Seoul) in 2007, Seoul Olympic Museum of Art (Seoul) in 2006, National Museum of Contemporary Art (Gwacheon) in 2004, Art in General (New York) in 2002, and Queens Museum of Art (Queens) in 2001. She received the first Doosan Yonkang Artist Award in 2010, and was invited to such renowned artist-residency programs such as Doosan Residency in New York and Tokyo Wonder Site in Tokyo.
