Moon Hee Kim
Moon Hee Kim is an interdisciplinary artist whose practice is exploring the notion of climate change by combining a wide range of media. A technique essential to her practice is producing still life in oil, sculptural objects, and documentary photographs and videos from observing site-specific and site-responsive installations.
Moon Hee’s works have won numerous awards, which were invited by notable art exhibitions including Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Boston City Hall, Galatea Fine Art gallery in Boston, the Aidekman Arts Center at Tufts University Art Gallery, Carpenter Center for the Arts at Harvard University, Kathryn Schultz Gallery and University Place Gallery at Cambridge Art Association, Mana Wynwood Convention Center in Miami, and Vermont Studio Center, and Virginia Center for the Creative Arts.
The climate change is underway and disrupting our world.
Through her still life, she hopes to bring the viewers on a journey to explore how the environment, society, and culture are linked together in these unprecedented times.
They symbolize the pressure we are putting on the environment, but also reveals the control we have over our collective future. It is meant to bring awareness about climate change and take a moment to reflect how we can start to talk about it and help viewers move beyond fear and anxiety about our future.
She studied Art, Film and Visual Studies at The Graduate School of Arts and Science from Harvard University and holds several graduate degrees including MFA degree from the SMFA at Tufts University and BFA degree with Academic Honors from Massachusetts College of Art and Design.
