Minae Kim

Minae Kim has produced site-responsive sculptures and installations that intervene in everyday environments as a way to address architectural spaces and the institutionalized art scene. She further questions contradictions and absurdities experienced within a given system. She was recently selected as one of the finalists for the Korea Artist Prize 2020, and is currently pursuing a doctoral degree at the Ruskin School of Art, University of Oxford.
