Mie Kim is a multidisciplinary artist primarily creating ceramic sculpture and limited design objects. She seeks to reclaim an ascetic intentionality in an era of perceived ‘abundance’ where many are divorced from the source and production of objects. Whether incubating commercial clay deep in the bowels of local clay pits, or sculpting directly from local material, her work is acutely tied to place - documenting and interrogating the relationship between nature and the society that surrounds her.
Her work can be found in the UK, US, S. Korea, Japan and Canada. Originally from Seoul, she currently lives and works in Montreal, Canada.
