“How to Become a True Post-human” is an exploration work that examines and attempts to discover a new sense and desire: to escape from the existing order and to be reborn as a post-human being. Dew Kim’s masochistic practice of destructing himself in his works acts as the driving force for dismantling the social norms and hierarchies.

Huh Need-you

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 visualizes 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.
