Kim Jee-Yun  (b. 1974, South Korea)

Date: 2 February – 2 March 2023

Opening: 2 February 2023 (Thursday)

Venue: Soluna Fine Art, GF, 52 Sai Street, Sheung Wan, Hong Kong


Soluna Fine Art is proud to present m<other>, the first solo exhibition of Hong Kong-based Korean photographer Kim Jee-Yun with the gallery. The exhibition features photographs and video work from Kim’s decade-long experiential documentary project, depicting children born to interracial marriages and their mothers.


The documentary project began with the artist’s personal storytelling about her intermarriage and mixed-race children. Since its inception in 2010, m<other> has been interested in racial awareness and perceptions towards child-mother’s different external appearances, and the development of self-representation in mixed-race teenagers after Kim’s child turned teen. Hong Kong, the city where the artist currently resides, is an intersection between the West and the East that simultaneously give rise to interracial families and concerns for their children’s identity, which varies depending on the age, level of education and the environment they grow up in. The complicated relations between individual attitudes and the sense of group position vary, and mixed-race teenagers, who begin to undergo emotional and societal development, further force us to consider between “descent” and “consent” about identity. 


Through the collaboration between the artist and gallery, we are also pleased to donate ten percent of the exhibition sales towards Mother’s Choice, a local charity organization serving many children without families and pregnant teenagers in Hong Kong. Furthermore, video works are envisioned by LG OLED ART. m<other> will be on view from 2 February – 2 March 2023, with an opening reception on 2 February (Thursday) at 5 – 8pm.
