Dew kim has been working on combining body and sexuality with social and religious perspectives. In this exhibition, Succulent Humans, He introduces a new reproductive system for the imagined survivors of the last human race.
Ecological apocalypse. The Earth will soon be destroyed, and those who have been selected will leave Earth on Analufo No.33. The remaining survivors tried to reproduce, but could not breed with their own reproductive system used back on Earth. Eventually, The survivors will try the ribs that Adam used in the old testament. Through various experiments, a succulent piece of meat begins to grow on ribs.

Dew Kim visualizes stories about post-gender and non-binary through collage, video and installation. By using Fanciful images of subculture and images of fractal, a geometric structure with self-similarity, He emerges irregular natural complexity and ironic sense of the posthuman, allowing the artist to visualise alternatives to corporate views of space exploration and contest mainstream imaginations such as Elon Musk”s Space X enterprise.



듀킴은 신체와 섹슈얼리티를 사회적, 종교적 관점을 접목시켜 작업을 해왔다. 이번 전시 <다육인간>에서는 마지막 인류의 생존자가 새로운 방식으로 인류를 번식하는 과정을 소개한다.

전시의 시작은 종말론적 이야기로 시작한다. 지구는 곧 멸망을 하고 선택받은 이들은 아나루포 33호(Analufo no.33)를 타고 지구를 떠난다. 나머지 생존자는 지구에서 사용했던 자신의 생식기로는 번식을 할 수 없었다. 결국 그들은 예전에 아담이 사용했던 갈비뼈를 사용해보기로 한다. 다양한 실험을 통하여 갈비뼈에서 통통한 살점이 자라기 시작한다.

작가는 꼴라주, 영상, 설치를 통해 포스트젠더와 논바이너리에 대한 이야기를 시각화시킨다. 자기 유사성을 갖는 기하학적 구조인 프랙털(fractal)의 이미지를 이용하여 불규칙적인 자연의 복잡성과 서브컬쳐의 공상적인 이미지들을 이용하여 포스트휴먼에 대한 작가의 아이러니한 감각들을 드러내고 우주 탐사에 대한 작가의 상상력을 엘론머스크의 Space X와 같은 기업 주류의 상상력과 겨룰 수 있는 대안을 제시하고있다.
