<My First Date> at Obviously Video #8, Eulji Space, Seoul, Korea, 2018

Dew Kim (aka HornyHoneydew) creates fictional stories by collecting languages and images that proliferate on the Internet and flourish in queer subcultures. Through assemblages of physical and nonphysical objects like moving image and sound, Kim imagines new worlds and environments.  Recently, Dew Kim has produced sci-fi works that link posthuman concepts with queer ontology, religion, and mysticism. He transforms his body into an object in order to visualize and describe what it means to be queer.

<Purple Kiss ♡> explores the process of how homo sapiens evolve into posthumans through shamanism. The future of mankind depends on a shaman, known as HornyHoneydew, who has undergone extensive spiritual preparation for a ceremony that will transform humanity. On the appointed day when Venus shines brightest in the sky, the shaman  performs a ceremony to transfer souls into the bodies of a new human race. Homo sapiens, who are struggling to survive on a dying Earth that is increasingly similar to the toxic atmosphere of the planet Venus,  dream of prosperity again by mutating into posthumans.

Through gender, sexuality, religion and science, Dew Kim speculates about what it is to be posthumanBy evoking the sound and look of a K-pop video, <Purple Kiss ♡>  is a critical examination of dualistic heteronormative ideas that dominate Korean culture and society. Kim deploys shamanism in order to champion expanded notions of non-binary genders like that of the Two-spirit concept found in indigenous North American communities.
