Bohyeon Kim is a South Korean artist who graduated from Slade School of Fine Art in London with an MFA in 2018. She explores the framework of painting through sculptural intervention. Employing found objects and digital images woven into sprawling installations, anthropomorphic and surreal qualities emerge. Probing the relation between object and subject, Kim’s practice is centred on deconstructing layers of form, colour, shape and texture, agitating the materiality of surface.
With the influence of the internet generation, I have been attracted to explore the relationship between phenomena of the digital age and ecosystems, combining both a futuristic and archival approach to synthesizing and presenting in formation. I seek out the elegance of anxiety, or of excitation through the tropes of experimentation and pataphysics, examining and speculating on the dialectical relation between object and subject.
