Wait for the Trust Together portrays the collective care and creation of the virtual figure Kimberly Lee and the conversation between the members of Kimberly DAO about the distribution of virtual currency and its rules, as well as Kimberly’s future direction. The members of DAO share the journey where they can expand the ideas and concepts that the virtual character Kimberly is able to develop, exploring the sense of community formed by a decentralized digital organization and its digital connection.
Eunsol LEE（이은솔） mainly works with Kimberly Lee, a virtual character she created on a digital network, and currently continues expanding its world in her work. The name “Kimberly Lee“ comes from the artist’s experience of discovering her Instagram account being hacked and its name changed to “Kimberly“, which was later used to be developed as the project’s character. Lee manages Kimberly’s life cycle through a series of projects and focuses on the structural frame that maintains the virtual identity intervening in the real life. Kimberly the Optimist (2021, Space Four One Three, Seoul) and Kimberly Extract (2021, SeMA Storage, Seoul) are some of Lee’s solo exhibitions, and she participated in The Post Modern Child (2022—2023, Museum of Contemporary Art, Busan), Grid Island (2022, Seoul Museum of Art, Seoul), and Typojanchi 2021: A Turtle and A Crane (2021, Culture Station Seoul 284, Seoul).
