Does this feel familiar?
Expo by Naomi He-Ji
Rotterdam based visual artist Naomi He-Ji, likes to make connections between colorful imaginations of (sometimes heavy) subjects around identity and sexuality, and taboos in a playful and sometimes funny way. With her strong visual imagination she discovered a way to bring this into the world from her head.
She draws her inspiration, among other things, from the connection within communities in which identity and sexuality play a role, observing people, femininity and her mixed roots. Naomi has often felt different within groups, but she managed to embrace this by seeing the beauty of ‘different’.
For MOMO Naomi looked into her mixed roots and looked how a Dutch family got connected with a Korean family with her being in the middle.
