Miru Kim - The pig therefore I am

Here what her biography says "Miru Kim was born in Stoneham, Massachusetts in 1981 and was raised in Seoul, Korea. She moved back to Massachusetts in 1995 to attend Phillips Academy in Andover, and moved to New York City in 1999 to attend Columbia University. In 2006, she received an MFA in painting from Pratt Institute. She is an avid cook and a rat lover". In this series, one moreby a woman about the strange similarities between the status of the pig and of the woman (you can click on the Pigs tag to find them on this blog) although pigs are supposed to be men. But reading the Miru Kim's statement about her project (here), it seems we are in a much more conceptual approach, based upon a Michel Serres' books about the 5 senses (not a French philosopher I particularly appreciated but who cares). The important is that the pictures are fascinating and provide a mindshaking impression. Miru Kim's site is here. Some moving images below.
