"Somniatores" is an MFA thesis exhibition by Min Kyu Kim. Meaning "dreamers" in Latin, this gallery installation features a headless man and numerous whales, two distinctive symbols that originated from Min Kyu’s life experience. The contrasting figurines are combined to create a “scene”, which clearly portrays a bizarre narrative. However, it is not “defined”. We define who we are by what we choose to be, and such decisions come from the individual’s experience, perspective and interpretation. In this dream-like panorama, what will you see and how will you interpret?

Like Fredrich Nietzsche said, “There are no facts. Only interpretations.”

Gallery occupancy is limited to allow for social distancing. Face coverings are required in all campus buildings and outdoor spaces.
