Artist in Residence: Junghun Kim

Junghun Kim is a multidisciplinary artist working between The Netherlands and South Korea. His works are conceived as activation systems where poetic, spiritual, and political gestures reveal the dimension of causalities that have remained invisible to our anthropomorphic vision. While searching for regenerative ecological care and its distribution, his work guide audiences into interactive and collaborative environments.

During the residency period, Junghun Kim will focus on creating critical visual narratives about extractive approaches to the natural world and its causalities produced by human hegemony and researching several cases of destruction, climate change, and techno-capital media dependency. Through developing painting, sculptural and meditative practices,  He is interested in emphasizing human and non-human’s physical and spiritual sufferance and its inseparable relation between needing conscious human behavior and the extinction of biodiversity.
