Christine Sun Kim

Born in 1980 at Orange County, California, USA. Lives and works in Berlin.
Christine Sun Kim's practice considers how sound operates in society, deconstructing the politics of sound and exploring how oral languages operate as social currency.

Musical notation, written language, infographics, American Sign Language (ASL), the use of the body, and strategically deployed humor are all recurring elements in her practice. Working across drawing, performance, video and large scale murals, Kim explores her relationship to spoken and signed languages, to her built and social environments, and to the world at large.

Kim’s work has been extensively exhibited and performed internationally. She is represented by François Ghebaly Gallery in Los Angeles and White Space in Beijing.

In 2024, she participated in the collective exhibition Coming Soon at Lafayette Anticipations, Paris.
