However, we will still be featuring the work and projects of our artists online, so be sure to check this site and our social media platforms to find out how we will bring these projects to you remotely. Stay safe everyone!
EMI BRENER – UNDER THE SKIN
Depicting body and emotion in mixed media works that poetically merge the mediums of oil painting and embroidery, visual artist Emi Brener aims to convey moments of human intimacy and vulnerability. Under the banner Under the Skin, SomoS premieres Brener’s latest work, conceived and made in early 2020 during Emi’s Berlin artist residency, along with an interview that offers deeper insight into the unique creative world of this engaging Uruguayan artist.
JIYEON KIM – MEME PAINTINGS
(POSTPONED) The solo exhibition of Meme Paintings by South-Korean artist Jiyeon Kim explores ways of representing the individual in our digital era. Most of Kim’s work uses acrylic paint, and combines elements of abstraction with figuration. Deeply invested in reinterpreting the art of portraiture in a contemporary way, she focuses on the ways in which our attitudes toward depictions of the human face and figure have changed with the rise of the internet and digital technology.
