Her art practice goes beyond and far limitlessly in mixed-media forms, consisting of digital/visual art, installation, street performance, painting, and photography. Professor Kim’s recent exhibition in Seoul represents “race”, “integration”, and “transformation” reinterpreted through surreal figures in photography. The Becoming series depicts two races forming as one physique manifesting the unification.
