Grace Euna Kim is a New York born Korean-American performance and visual artist, pedagogue, and researcher based in Berlin. She has devised immersive performances in diverse site-specific contexts—from citywide public interventions; to cultural and educational institutions; to the intimacy of a private home. Her current practice deploys immersive methods, as a means to question, decode, and reinvent the theatre of the audience themselves, and thereby work through embedded social and political issues. Drawn from psychoanalytic theories and approaches, this is concerned with an intimate critique of the constructs of performativity of everyday life, the ideology of bodies-in-space, and the subliminal processes by which social and political fictions are negotiated, spatialized, embodied, reproduced, and normalized.
During her performances, cameras are generally prohibited, with few exceptions. The experience is documented (when and however possible) through hidden cameras, texts (written afterward by participants), and sound. If you are interested in the private archives, please email the address below.
