Dahn Gim

Dahn Gim’s work explores hybridity both in concept and materials. Living abroad as a foreigner since age ten, she finds herself vacillating between the familiar and the unfamiliar. Gim is currently delving into the exploration of cultivated biological raw materials such as agar, yeast, and bacteria by synthesizing them with natural or human artifacts such as sand, tar, or plastics. By blurring the line between natural and synthetic, Gim’s work collapses the distance between fiction and research and offers a way to understand and experience alternative objecthood.
