Hannah Kim Varamini is an interdisciplinary artist based in Los Angeles, born in Washington, D.C. to first-generation Korean immigrants. Through a process that incorporates research and material investigation, her work traces interconnected histories and explores ideas surrounding rootedness, intimacy, and cultural hybridity. She spent time in Namibia on a Fulbright Fellowship in 2008, which propelled an ongoing interest in postcolonial discourse. She has presented work in various contexts including the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery, Santa Cruz Museum of Art, the Phillips Collection, and the National Art Gallery of Namibia. She received her BFA from Cornell University, and MFA from California Institute of the Arts.
Through the project Love’s Remedies, she, alongside artist BRD, has created a framework of collaboration involving actions supporting others - through enabling exhibitions, workshops, reading groups, conversations, and work development, via an ethos of listening and response.
