Ayoung Kim: Synthetic Storyteller - Softcover


  • The Floorplan is pleased to announce the publication of Ayoung Kim: Synthetic Storyteller, the first and most comprehensive monograph encompassing the artist’s practice. Visual and media artist Ayoung Kim weaves reality anew through a tapestry of hybrid narratives while integrating geopolitics, mythology, technology and futuristic iconography in her work. The outcomes of synthesized narratives result in far-reaching speculation, establishing connections between biopolitics and border controls, the memories of stones and virtual memories, and ancestral origins and imminent futures in the forms of video, moving image, virtual reality (VR), game simulation, sonic fiction, diagrams and texts. 
  • As the hitherto most extensive introduction to the artist’s work, this monograph presents a selection of artworks produced between 2007 and 2022 through still images and installation views together with several critical voices. It includes Ayoung Kim’s text and scripts from various projects which are the foundation of her work, an interview with curator Hyunjoo Byeon, accompanied by analytical essay contributions from Nanna Heidenreich, Chien-Hung Huang, Jinshil Lee, Chanda Prescod-Weinstein and Wonhwa Yoon.
