Bangjoo Kim

Bangjoo Kim produces works with performance and performative elements. He investigates the border between society and himself, performing mechanical movements imbued with rules to remediate himself as an individual. By relating to the body as an object that moves mechanically, Kim views structures, including himself, from a new perspective.
