(he/him) is a Korean artist currently based in Seoul, South Korea. Kim primarily works with video, photography, and installation to discuss the lives of queer people and people living with HIV/AIDS. Working from his personal experiences, Kim devises narratives that trace moments from the past and the future. Much of his work considers how the force of disease affects personal relationships. Recent solo exhibitions include Back then, If Bell Doesn’t Ring (2020), which dealt with specific locations and their connotations, and Romantic Fantasy (2021), which conflated the HIV virus with a romantic relationship.
