GHEEM Sookyoung was born in 1992 in Daegu, South Korea. She obtained DNA option Arts at the École Supérieure des beaux-arts de Tours in 2019. She participated in several exhibitions in Venice(IT), London(UK), France and Korea. She now lives and works in Paris and Vitry-sur-seine. Her work spans installation, sculpture and performance.

She proposes spaces-time work to explore subterranean forms in our ordinary. Instead of prescribing the work's shape, she finds the form of work within a relationship or lets her work to shaping itself by interacting with the external environment. Through her performative work, she questions how intangible fragments affect us and how we can depict them.

She studied visual communication design at Kyungpook National University in Daegu, South Korea. Afterwards, she studied 16mm film cinema and the philosophy of film. She showed her 16mm film at EXIS(Experimental Film and Video Festival) in 2013, and ephemeral works in urban spaces in Seoul. From these experiences, she creates her moving image outside of the screen.
