Kyungmin Sophia Son is a visual artist, born in 1988, South Korea, currnely living and working in London. Kyungmin graduated her MA in Sculpture from the Royal College of Art (2017), BA (Hons) Fine Art from Goldsmiths College (2014), and recently completed her MRes in Visual Cultures from Goldsmiths College (2020). 

Kyungmin works on sculpture and spatial installation consist of multidisciplinary collage, digital imagery and creative writing. Her reserach practice focuses on posthuman discourse, environmentalism, post-Anthropocene and urgent climate change amid the ever growing techno-sphere on the surface of environmental decay. Kyungmin elaborates the status of ‘becoming’ within human and non-human relationships, traversing their expanded meaning within contemporary phenomena. Kyungmin endeavour to dismantle the social and political impact of an ever-expanding techno industry and explore the entanglement of nature, energy cycles and mystery and their transgressing realms and status, from terrestrial to planetary scale. 

Kyungmin has been presented her work internationally, exhibitions in Kunsthal Charlottenborg in Coppenhagen DK, Snehta residency and exhibition in Athens GR, Barbican arts trusts, Camden Art centre, Coller Bristow in London GB and The Royal Edinburgh Sculpture Court, Scotland.
