Jess Beige Kim
Born in California (1994), South Korean. She lives and works in London.
Jess Beige’s practice explores the shape-shifting encounters between raw materials and objects that are gathered through time and are influenced by her perpetually fluctuating surroundings including, friends, family and her multi-cultural background. She creates sculptures intuitively using a variety of primary, and often foraged materials, such as faux fur, metal, wood, fabric, plastic, clay and more. She investigates the relationships of such materials associating them with ideas of friendship, family and cultural diversity, as a way of navigating togetherness within a fluid artistic process.
Jess Beige has completed an MA Painting at the Royal College of Art in London in 2020 and a BA Fine Art at Goldsmiths University of London in 2017.
