Dew Kim views the concepts of 'queerness' and ‘gender’, the boundaries of which become blurred as they get more fragmented and expand along a spectrum, through the lens of Shamanism. His project <The Old and Wrong Way of Seeing Things (2020)> adopted its title from a derogatory description of Shamanism, the beliefs and practices often associated with North Asia which used to be denigrated as the 'black faith' by Western people. Understanding binary concepts such as good and evil, heaven and hell, cause and effect, and subject and object as religious ‘divisions’, the artist investigates the persecution of homosexuals from the perspective of the Western religions and the magical practices and roles of Korean Shamanism, which is seen as oppositional to the Western religions. He focuses on the physical performances commonly found in shamanic activities and attempts to re-examine the relationship between shamanic practices, rituals, and visual expressions from K-pop by using the lens of queerness.

듀킴은 점차 경계가 모호해지는 퀴어와 젠더의 개념을 샤머니즘의 시각으로 탐구하고자 한다. 그는 과거 서구인들에 의해 ‘흑신앙(black faith)’이라 폄훼하여 불리던 북아시아 주술-종교인 ‘샤머니즘’의 또 다른 비하적 표현인 ‘사물을 보는 낡고 잘못된 방식’을 그대로 차용한 프로젝트를 진행한다. 작가는 선과 악, 천국과 지옥, 원인과 결과, 주체와 대상 등을 이분법적으로 규정하는 사고체계가 종교에서 파생된 ‘분리’ 개념이라고 본다. 이에 작가는 서구 종교적 관점에서의 동성애 박해와 이에 대립되는 한국 무속신앙의 주술적 수행과 그 역할을 탐구한다. 작가는 이번 프로젝트에서 샤머니즘 의식의 퍼포먼스에 주목하며 퀴어와 젠더, 나아가 트랜스 휴먼과 포스트휴먼에 대한 이야기를 K-pop 뮤직비디오 형식으로 보여준다.
