Curator Elaine Kim is a Sydney-based Curator and Artist of Korean background. Elaine has a studio at Kil.n.it Experimental Ceramics Studio in Glebe, Sydney. She is currently studying Master of Curating and Cultural Leadership at UNSW where she got a Bachelor of Fine Arts Honours degree. She curated "The Third Space" in 2021, "Ceramics and Emotions" and "Daily Rhythms" in 2022. Elaine is Finalist in Gosford Art Prize, Penrith Show 2017(Second Prize), Jenny Birt Award 2020(Highly Commended), and Shelly Simpson Prize 2021(Finalist). She has exhibited her artwork in Hazlehurst Gallery, AD Space, UNSW Gallery, Gaffa Gallery, and Kerrie Lowe Gallery in Sydney. She sees the world through two cultures Korea and Australia, giving her perhaps a broader scope with how she perceives the particularly visual world. Her practice is led by a series of experiments that aim to destroy traditional art structures of time and space. Elaine explores the notion that all cultures are hybrid, and there is no longer a pure obedient culture that preserves and thrives on its own. She seeks to express the moment when the boundary between obedience and hybridity breaks down, through a process of translation of her cultures.

Beyond the Dream

The aim of this exhibition is to provide a fantasy space in an art museum that allows the audience to leave reality for a while. Through careful curating, the exhibition space enhances the immersion of the zone through visual and auditory stimulation provided by light, music and artwork. The expansion of the senses through these stimuli presents a new type of 'dream' to the audience at the exhibition. This exhibition space is a surreal area that can only be experienced in a dream, a territory where you can enjoy freedom and comfort. It provides visitors with a variety of ways to experience art through artwork such as media art and physical objects. Media artwork is produced by combining various media image technologies such as augmented reality and virtual reality. The exhibition pursues an interactive experience where the audience can create new works together while drawing their own dreams, beyond simply looking at artwork. This exhibition space can be a place for understanding fine art or a fantasy space where creative ideas can be conceived. You can experience the uniqueness and mystery of dreams with excellent display quality and expressive power by providing various, unique spaces with dreams as the subject matter. The space itself becomes another art and it is an exhibition that can communicate with the audience. The various forms of dreams expressed through contemporary art and music will awaken the audience to new imaginations and inspire to redraw their dreams based on their infinite artistic creativity.
