Miru Kim, The Pig That Therefore I Am @ DOOSAN Gallery

I am a vegetarian, I support not killing pigs and I am no fan of industrial farming, but I am not sure why making attractive pictures of a nubile naked women lying next to pigs in a seductively photographed industrial pig pen is suppose to make me ponder the cruelty of eating meat or the cruelty of industrial farming. The large photographs of pig on woman skin have the formal precision of what I imagine soft-core bestiality porn would look like (some where Jock Struges just had an idea). And out of critical generosity, I won’t even mention the wall text that asks you to “Listen carefully to the cacophony of echoing squeals and groans over a loud, mechanical hum….”

Through April 23rd
