Focusing on research of ultrafine particles, magnetic field, lead and mercury, Yunchul Kim strives to find a meeting point of science and art.  He attempts to shift the status of ‘materials and objects’, from human’s auxiliary substance and means to a practically active actant. His matters in the space would allow viewers to obtain material imagination and consequently lead them into ‘the world of materials’ where aesthetic experiences are feasible, from ‘the material world’ caught in cultures, values, purposes and symbols.

Yunchul Kim’s solo exhibitions have included Evanescent at SongEun ArtSpace (2016); Whiteout at Alternative Space Loop (2014); Eluvial Horizon at Jiri Svestka Berlin (2013); and Amorph at Kuenstlerhaus Bethanien (2011). His works have been shown at various art exhibitions and events worldwide: National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Seoul; Asia Culture Center, Gwangju; Seoul Museum of Art, Seoul; Daejeon Museum of Art, Daejeon; SOMA Museum of Art, Seoul; National Art Museum of China, Beijing; Austrian Museum of Applied Arts, Vienna; and Museum of Modern Art, New York (online exhibition). In 2016, Kim has been selected as a winner of COLLIDE International Award 2016 and received much attention.
