Kim Gurney works in an interdisciplinary way between fine art, writing and academic research. Her practice deals with disappearances of different kinds and makes restorative gestures. Kim has held two solo exhibitions and participates annually on group shows, while engaging other practitioners through ad-hoc curatorial initiatives. She currently holds a ‘Next Generation Researcher’ fellowship at the University of the Western Cape’s Centre for Humanities Research, and holds a long-standing research affiliation with the African Centre for Cities, University of Cape Town. Kim’s writing covers a range of topics and modalities, currently favouring long-form narrative and occasional journalism features. She is the author of ‘August House is Dead, Long Live August House!’ (2017), a book of creative nonfiction, and ‘The Art of Public Space’ (2015), an academic monograph. Kim lives and works in Cape Town, South Africa.
