KIM/ILLI is an emerging and award-winning transdisciplinary studio and collaborative platform formed in 2020; working in the fields of art, architecture, and design—utilizing various methodologies ‘within and beyond’ the realms of (im)materiality: visuality, sound, and space—focusing on research, finding intersections, sharing and expanding knowledge, expertise, and networks in the global context, and discursive activities among local communities as well as public spaces.

The collective believes in the antithetical possibilities of collaborative work; transcending boundaries; KIM/ILLI infuse their work with a distinctive blend of semiotics, humor, and commercial sensibilities, accelerating a creative process and strengthening conceptual approaches to actual cultural production that tie our perception of relationships.
Co-Founders Seulbi Kim & Christian Tenefrancia Illi won the 1st jury prize along with the public vote in the Europe-wide EDGE East Side Competition (2021), and received the 2nd prize (Federal Environment Agency, 2022) and 3rd prize (Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs, 2024) in the international Art in Architecture competitions of the Federal Office for Building and Regional Planning in Berlin. They obtained the artist residency grant from the Arts Foundation Baden-Württemberg, Württembergischer Kunstverein (WKV) Stuttgart, Goethe-Institut Barcelona & HANGAR.ORG in 2020. KIM/ILLI participated and solo exhibited at Galeria H2O in the 2022 iteration of the Art Nou festival in Barcelona and L’Hospitalet de Llobregat. Their work is currently on display at Japanisches Palais as a cultural possession on loan from the Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden (Dresden State Art Collections) in 2024. Selected by the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA); Studio KIM/ILLI will be responsible for the Philippine Pavilion at the 2025 Venice Architecture Biennale.
