“The culture shock of recontextualizing to New York from Seoul has led me to to reflect on notions of spaces of security, safe havens in which one could feel one belongs; how the brain continuously looks for the known in order to find and nurture stability: nostalgia, dependency, recurrence of memories….

My current body of work touches upon these issues: what does it mean to reformulate my identity within a new context, and how is identity formed in the midpoint between a future self that is being planned from the past.” — Bonam Kim
