Artist Miru Kim is known as the merry explorer of abandoned and decrepit urban crevices: catacombs, shipyards, sewers, rooftops and tunnels. Kim takes the fearless and potentially unhygienic route to humanizing real spaces as post-Apocalyptic adventure-lands. The photographer has glinted with her nude frame around the hidden parts of Seoul, New York, Paris, Berlin, Philadelphia, Montreal and London. Recently, Kim has added to her repertoire by prowling around Istanbul over the last month. “Naked City Spleen Instanbul” opens next week.
