In this SomoS artist interview, we present South-Korean artist Jiyeon Kim who divides her time between Seoul and Berlin. She speaks about portraiture in the digital era, and the relation between online images and real life painting. The interview was conducted during Kim’s artist residency at SomoS early 2020, and published at the occasion of her solo exhibition Meme Paintings, June 9th until July 18th 2020.
Intimate, uncanny and thoughtful, the work of American Fine Art photographer Alicia Savage presents a poetic portrait of collective curiosity and subconscious thought.
Between June 9 and July 18 2020, SomoS presents the exhibition Meme Paintings by South-Korean painter Jiyeon Kim, who explores ways of representing the individual in our digital era.
During his stay as Artist-in-Residence at SomoS, Chicago-based Chinese photographer Teiko Ang Zheng developed his visual and written storytelling, candidly capturing inhabitants of Berlin and the city itself within a queer and digitalized narrative.
The Bodily group exhibition at SomoS offered fresh perspectives on portraiture and the body, presenting photography, painting, drawing, sculpture by Ioanna Natsikou, Luiza Schiavo, Moran Sanderovich, Ileana Pascalau and Hanae Moreno.
Hanae Moreno is a Switzerland-based painter, focusing on portraits and the human form. Her oil-based work is marked by loose brushwork and an unsparing intimate psychological approach.
