Kyungrim Lim Jang (1992, Seoul) is an artist who is currently based in Western Asian city of Vienna. She has been constantly moving from one place to another in different parts of North America and Eurasia. Living as a foreigner in communities of different scales, ranging from families to societies, shaped her interest in often contradictory desire/needs for social integration and self-preservation that coexists within an individual. 

Reoccuring topics in her works include elastic distance that lies in between 'Us' / 'Them', and how the embedded direction of desire to belong somewhere is manifested. She spends most of her time lingering around crossroads of borders, landmarks, identifications, and the narratives that carry these distinctions. What is amplified, deleted, and distorted during the recording / translation process of a narrative, and the motives of the programming is also of her keen interest. Complications that take place between action, demonstration, and representation of the action is something that she thinks about regularly.
