Bo Kim is an artist-researcher who identifies as a person of color and with a disability. She has a keen interest in institutional settings and their commitment to diversity and inclusion, as she considers them a safe place for her to study, conduct research, and experiment within the field of art. Kim wants to express herself freely without any limitations imposed by societal pressure, judgment, or prejudice. Her artwork serves as a critique of normativity in institutionalization, and she continues to expand her work and research on intersectionality. Kim intends to undertake research projects that examine the institutional frameworks surrounding natural science collections of objects taken from their motherlands and stored in museum archives. She approaches this research with a critical lens, seeking to re-examine these collections and re-imbue the specimens and artifacts with the inherent value they hold beyond their purpose as mere specimens and objects.
