Artist’s Bio

‘Once, self-care was the new me-time, which was the new pampering, a trio of saccharine terms that can seem hopelessly out of date in a world that’s so strange and terrifying. Maybe the only sane antidote to an insane world is an even less sane one, like this work called <Me-Time(4.0): mindfulness-introspection void(2018)>, which seems to suggest we escape the world by simply cocooning ourselves up and popping ourselves in a bowl. Me Time(4.0) by Eunmi Mimi Kim is simultaneously compelling, eerie and comforting.  She recently showed her work in a group show, The Other Side of The Moon, which presented artworks that  merge the familiar with the alien —something this piece does very well indeed.’

Eunmi Mimi Kim(b. South Korea, 1988) is a UK-based, Korean-born artist. She completed her undergraduate degree in BA Fine Arts, Multimedia & Interactive Design, at Hanyang University, Korea and received her MA at the Royal College of Art, London UK where she studied Information Experience & Experimental Design. She is an emerging interdisciplinary artist, focusing on new media art that experiments with technologically mediated audio and visual installations, and performance art in relation to the theme of sensory experiences. Her art practice is based on contemplative, technical and theoretical experimentations, exploring the concept of sensory perception and its corresponding methods of communication, questioning how we perceive the world around us through the senses.
