Wednesday Kim was born in Korea, immigrated to America in her early teens. She is a multimedia artist whose work is in the medium of video, performance, installation, and sculpture.

She studied and worked in NYC for several years. Currently, she is producing art in her garage located in North Dakota. Most of her work is like the world refracted through the prism of a schizophrenic mind.

Unwelcome experiences from trauma have led me to having intrusive thoughts. These intrusive thoughts and unpleasant ideas became an obsession.

The hidden forces of the unconscious blend with traumatic memories and incoherent mixtures from my subconscious mind, forming bizarre images, which appeared in my daydreams and night dreams. Most of my works are like the world refracted through the prism of a schizophrenic mind.

My art involves found objects, assemblage, videos, sculptures, and performance; a mixture of analog, digital, and movement. I would like the experience of viewers seeing my art to be somewhat like a game of hide-and-seek with me, psychologically. Sometimes I am hiding in my work, trying not to be found; other times, I chase viewers. As far as others viewing my artwork, I like to think that momentary catharsis can occur.
