In Berlin? Catch the very fun exhibition: Berry Kim's Berrylin March 19th opening 6-9 PM Rnjoy!
SomoS is delighted to present “B E R R Y L I N,” a solo exhibition by Artist-in-Residence Berry Kim (South Korea), in which she reinterprets the visual and textual language of Berlin using a fresh gaze and lots of humor.
Berry Kim’s B E R R Y L I N, is a liberated realm freed from the pressures and expectations of South Korean society, yet, like Berry’s earlier work, still heavily based on the reinterpretation of urban life and consumer culture. A bright pop-culture world that playfully, but not uncritically, re-imagines the commercial and materialistic everyday goings-on of fashion, beauty, street life, art, and nightlife, B E R R Y L I N is a one-of-a-kind romp through a fantastical world, inspired by her time living in Berlin. Characters, landmarks, city streets, labels, brands and signs are animated and take on new meanings, and influences as extensive as 19th Century German iconography and art history, the Weimar Republic, to modern day club culture and computer games are channeled into witty, absurdist and irreverent artworks.
Berry’s immersive installation consists of mixed-media works, painting, drawings, large scale fabric prints, objects, and wearable art – in between subversive department store, delirious apartment, andWunderkammer, it parodies a hyper image/status-focused consumer society.
Opening Reception: March 19, 2019, 6-9pm Open March 20 – 27, Tue-Sa, 2-7pm Entry free
