DISTORTED BODY 2019-2021
Inspired by the human anatomy and psychoanalytic theory, Minju Kim explores desire as a main subject matter alongside the concept of life and death. The dismemberment of the body in contemporary society is the result of modern humans who are living in such oppression, fettered both physically and psychologically, submerged in mortality, forever lost in limbo.
MECHANICAL FLESH 2018-2021
Mechanical Flesh is a series of paintings on canvas. Inspired by anatomy charts, ultrasound pictures and cell images, Minju Kim creates a unique landscape of body where life and death runs in a continuous loop.
