In search of transparency in vision and voice, the medium-independent artist Joeun Kim Aatchim draws audiovisual essays. Her recent research focuses on the poetic translation of her stereoblindness and the psychology of pain in womanhood.
Aatchim's projects have been shown internationally, including at SBC Galerie d'art Contemporain in Montréal, Long March Space in Beijing, 80 WSE, The Jewish Museum, The Drawing Center, Harper's, Make Room LA, Jeffrey Deitch, Daniel Faria, and François Ghebaly.
Aatchim is a recipient of various fellowships from Nida Art Colony in Lithuania, Skowhegan School of Painting & Sculpture, The Lighthouse Works, Open Sessions at The Drawing Center, Triangle, and Yaddo.
She earned her BFA in Studio Arts at New York University and her MFA in Visual Arts at Columbia University.
