Major project:

Practice (Mirrored)

The women featured in Practice (Mirrored) were found through dance classes and YouTube and invited to perform choreography in a rehearsal venue. The resulting images show their reflection as they watch themselves in the studio mirror, highlighting gesture, gaze and the representation of the body in pop culture. 


  • Dawoon Kim (b.1994) is a South Korean artist, based in London, working primarily in photography, sound and video installation. Her practice addresses themes of identity, representation and desire with references to youth, pop culture and technology.
