Huh, Need-you has explored the meaning of the body in society. In his DAD (2020) series, he depicts "three fathers," discussing their queer identity and the relationship between life and the religion of his family. He talks about his identity as a queer son of a pastor, comparing this with the story of Abraham and Isaac in Genesis, chapter 22. A man tying his shoelaces in a determined way, rough hands washing vulnerable legs, and a shoe hung high above with a holy foot trace on which lives are growing on are the symbols of three fathers: biological father, daddy as a boyfriend in the queer world and God the Father. They are heading somewhere that does not exist.
