This is one of the main subjects studied by South Korean artist  HaYoung Kim in her first solo exhibition in East London @ Hoxton Art Gallery.

HaYoung Kim, who has reached critical acclaim in London and internationally winning the Major Prize with Jerwood or the Soloman J Soloman Prize in 2010 is renowned for her colourful depictions of manga inspired characters and landscapes, painting onto unusual surfaces such as drafting film and polyester.

Kim’s practice focusses on the ways human beings consume and relate with technology; her recent work explores the physiological relationship between individuals and the digital realm. In this solo exhibition at HQGallery Kim will include a series of ‘dish paintings’ which feature meals of organic matter merging with the technological… offering confused jumbles of flesh, food and emoticons on each of the plates.
