See Through Space
Alice Mijeong Kim
14 January – 15 March 2015
AGYU kicks off a new series of commissioned works by York MFA and PhD students for AGYU Vitrines with York MFA candidate Alice Mijeong Kim. Kim’s work explores the phenomenology of location, presence, and spatial experience through engaged viewership and site-specificity. In See Through Space—developed specifically for the three vitrines that line the exterior wall of the AGYU—she invites passers-by to contemplate the many layers of space projected onto and into each of these vitrine spaces, where the vitrine windows themselves become views into different spaces altogether while reflecting the world around them, their entanglement situated at the threshold of a multiplicity of spatial diffractions.
Kim is a graduate of the Berlin University of the Arts. Her work has been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions internationally. She works across a variety of media including installation, books, video, object, and photography.
