Kyung Hee “Kate” Im is a sculptor and installation artist whose artwork highlights aspects of physical isolation and how isolation has been exaggerated. Her artworks depict the ways people maintain remote relationships, staying connected with digital communication tools and complex networking systems. The sculptures portray bodies that are often fragmented, their parts isolated from one another in space, but also bound together by a network of fragile threads. Those physical threads represent intangible connections, which are in a state of constant flux sagging down or pulling taught under tension, getting clumped and twisted together, and becoming permanently entangled over time.


Im’s artwork has been exhibited nationally and internationally including South Korea, Georgia, Texas, and California. Also, she had several group and solo exhibitions including virtual exhibitions. Kate joined CWU's Department of Art + Design in 2022.
