Na Kim creates expansive work that freely traverses the edge between fine art and design. Kim’s works have been showcased at many international exhibitions, including The V&A, MoMA, Milan Triennale Museum, Die Neue Sammlung, MMCA, CAFA, and many more. By doing away with pre-existing rules and symbolic meanings, she studies the essential elements in form, rearranging it based on its geometric standards. In her work, the formal elements of graphic design are transformed into the formal language of fine art. She presents ongoing experiments with new forms and content that transcend the boundaries that exist between contemporary art and design.

The ongoing series titled SET, was first shown as a solo exhibition in New York in 2015. In SET, a collection of past works dating from 2006 to 2015 were presented. The book with the eponymous title functions as a catalog and an exhibition plan. In the SET series, the contents of the catalog are installed in the exhibition space, where either past commissions or studio works are collectively shown regardless of their production year, medium, or context. They are imbued with a new order based on visual elements from each component.
