Kim Sangjin is interested in human-created systems such as language, signs, time, and order and the other side of such systems, exploring the uncertainties that come from an unstable system of human cognition, a disjunction between perception and existence and its resulting contradiction and irrationality. Kim graduated from Seoul National University with a BFA in plastic arts and from Goldsmiths, University of London, with an MFA in fine arts. In 2013, he was selected for Kumho Young Artists and was chosen as the ninth Resident Artist at Kumho Museum. He has presented at three solo exhibitions and eight group exhibitions including Landscape: Chicken or Egg (Kumho Museum, 2013), Phantom Sign (Alternative Space Loop, 2014), and Dreaming Machines (Strategic Project of 4th Moscow International Biennale, NCCA, Moscow, 2014).
