Yuni Kim, born in Busan, South Korea, is a Berlin-based artist who works with text, sculpture, photography, installation, drawing, sound and painting. She explores the representation of her subjectivity and emotions in connection with objects, animals and plants that contain historical symbols. Yuni achieves this by duplicating, bending, overlapping, and repositioning the objects. Through her artistic practice, she reinterprets the architecture of the exhibition space, working beyond the boundaries of space and time.
