Miru Kim, Going Places

Thanks Howard (my Facebook friend) for introducing me to Miru Kim and her art projects.

Miru Kim is a New York-based artist who has explored various urban ruins such as abandoned subway stations, tunnels, sewers, catacombs, factories, hospitals, and shipyards. For her new series that examines the relationship between pigs and humans, she has visited various industrial hog farms.
