LAURA HYUNJHEE KIM (b. Palo Alto, CA)
Laura Hyunjhee works with video, performance, and the Internet as a medium to render familiar physical experiences into digitally fabricated (non)existent spaces that reimagine digital culture and authorship. Thematically, her recent projects examine ubiquitous consumer-grade technology and ‘readymade’ apps/platforms that control online experiences, influence behavior, create new daily rituals and reconfigure everyday life.
Laura Hyunjhee has shown work in numerous on/offline exhibition spaces, screenings, and festivals around the world including CAAMFest, Minnesota Street Project, Kadist Art Foundation, California Academy of Sciences, Portland State University, Aurora Picture Show, Newark Museum, Bronx Art Space, New York Anthology Film Archives, MIX NYC, Annual Dresden Artists' Exposition, Mutuo Centro de Arte, Magmart International Videoart Festival, São Paulo Museum of Image and Sound, Costa Rica Museum of Contemporary Art and Design, quARTel - Galeria Municipal de Arte, Caracas Museum of Contemporary Art-Caracas, Fei Contemporary Art Center-Shanghai, Asian Experimental Video Festival, Institute of Contemporary Arts - London, The Berlin International Directors Lounge, “#nfcdab Wrocław” Digital Art Biennial, Super Art Modern Museum, The Wrong-New Digital Art Biennale.
