Dew Kim

Dew Kim (aka Huh Need-you) explores the meaning of beings excluded and discarded from the world moving towards normality, and the intense impulsive energy generated there. He also visualises the queer narrative through the process of transforming the body by objectifying himself, and attempts to break the boundaries of the social structure and binary thinking.
