Kim’s art practice generally responds to disappearances of different sorts and makes restorative gestures. This has ranged from mixed media works commemorating people forcibly ‘disappeared’ during oppressive political regimes - Appendix, Indice - to largescale paintings about scorned urban space - Shapeshifters, visualising statistics of vulnerable species - Red List series, sculpting and performing a San instrument of communication from archival documentation into a sound art installation - Honey Hunters, and exploring financial crisis through word play - Mother of all Firewalls. New work underway variously explores future cities, the anthropocene and financial shenanigans.
