Minjung Kim (b. 1962) is a contemporary Korean artist best known for her subtle formal compositions on layered paper. Committed to re-interpreting traditional Korean aesthetics, Kim employs a process-based organization of her thoughts, problems, and whims in each of her artworks. Working exclusively with traditional Korean hanji paper, through her repetitive process driven work of burning and layering the paper, she conveys the process of emotional healing and meditation committing herself to the natural lines created by candle light or incense burn.
Kim has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions including those held at the Hill Foundation, Langen Foundation, British Museum, MACRO (Museo arte contemporanea di Roma), OCI Museum Seoul, and Hermes Foundation Singapore.
