Sierra Metro presents: PAIN 2 POWER, an exhibition of new works by Haein Kim, exploring the modern woman’s psyche, how we want to see ourselves, materialism and puppies. We are delighted to be a partner gallery in this years Edinburgh Art Festival.
Following a residency within the gallery space, Haein Kim invites us into a playful world of humorous and bold protagonists, who readily express their fear, anxieties, love and determination. She is interested in the mixing of real life and digital experiences, and encourages the viewer to digitally share their IRL interactions within the exhibition. Her drawing practice is meditative and labour intensive, experimenting with opacity and vibrant colours, the new works will take form through drawings and life size cutouts.

Facilities: Gender neutral toilets, baby change, dog friendly, free wifi, coffee bar
