The second winner of 2015 KCCUK Open Call is Shinwook Kim. His first major solo show Sleepwalker will be held from 8 June to 27 June 2015. His series of photographic/video works deal with memory that comes into being between dis-location and de-location. From the series of photographic works of the abandoned land near airports to the videos that documents the artist's attempt to transfer sand from his garden to what he calls “non-places”, for Kim, memory is the space whether the dualities between reality and the imaginary can be reconfigured.

Born in Seoul in 1982, Shinwook Kim lives and works in London. He completed an MA in Photography at the Royal College of Art, 2014 and BA in Fine Art at Goldsmiths College. His major exhibitions include “Import/Export“, Northern Media Culture Association Magneetti, Tornio/Harparanda, (Finland/Sweden, 2013), Contemporary Korea Photo Exhibition of Four Young Photographers, Guardian Garden, Tokyo, (Japan, 2013), RA Summer Exhibition 2013, Royal Academy of Arts, London, (UK, 2013).
