Exhibitions CV

Kim Okura (born 1973 in Klagenfurt, Carinthia, Austria) lives and works in Vienna.

Okura’s artistic position reveals itself in her extensive and multi-layered work, which moves through a variety of approaches and forms and asserts the radical claim of pulsing through individual stagings of single works or cycles of work, rather than bowing to a contemporary decree of submitting work in a linear manner. Her artistic work includes drawings, paintings, graphics, canvas and paper works, objects, sculptures, conceptual art, installations, and texts.
