GIM IKHYUN
Born in 1985 ( Republic of Korea ) Lives and works in Seoul.

GIM Ikhyun (b.1985) delves deep into the parallax between what exists and being visible, and past and present, and further speculate it through the practice of photography and writing. He recalls, imagines and scrutinizes the connection and the rupture that have been made by a world drawn with Mercator’s projection, undersea fiber-optic cables, a world of nanometers and the Global Value Chain. GIM has participated in SeMA Biennale: Mediacity Seoul 2016, (Seoul Museum of Art, Seoul, 2016), PUSH, PULL, DRAG (Platform-L, Seoul, 2016), A SNOWFLAKE, (Kukje Gallery, Seoul, 2017) among other group exhibitions.
