Konglish is a small survey of Yeon Jin Kim’s multidisciplinary practice, highlighting her textiles, cut-paper book works and animated drawings, as well as her narrative films.
Born and educated in Seoul, she moved fifteen years ago to New York City where she continues to work and to teach at Fairleigh Dickinson University and Westchester Community College. Kim's years away from Korea provided an outside vantage point allowing her a greater understanding and appreciation of the Korean aesthetics and traditions that she was immersed in as a child. Although she was presented in school with Western aesthetics as a priority, she was always drawn to the beauty of Korean ceramics and textiles.
