Kim Kielhofner’s work is interested in layered narratives to examining the historical implications of how we understand stories, how we remember, and how we place ourselves within them. Working across video, drawing, installation, and text, she builds from a process of collecting images and material, and opens an imaginary space where the notions of self and place can be re-written through the rearrangement and dispersal of this material.
Her work has been presented in solo shows at Dazibao (Montréal, CA), LUX (London, UK), VOX (Montréal, CA), Sporobole (Sherbrooke, CA) and k48 (Vienna, AT). Her work has also been shown widely in group exhibitions and screenings including Kassel Documentary Film and Video Festival, WRO Biennale, Oberhausen International Short Film Festival, and Bienal de la Imagen en Movimiento, Buenos Aires. She has been an artist in residence at KulturKontakt (Vienna, AT), Aberystwyth Arts Centre (UK), and the Red Mansion Foundation (Beijing, CN).
