LIBERTINE presents Taewon Heo: “Kill the Secret Cops” | Paintings from Hong Kong.

Who are the secret cops. In these times they are everywhere. Or nowhere. Everyone is concerned to do away with “the man” - the authority - the cop. But like a mutation, the cop has multiplied and gone into hiding in each and every one.

Taewon Heo has been capturing “found-painting” images from various cities since 2005. The paintings are the result of covering over graffiti in public areas. His new exhibition at LIBERTINE focuses on the aftermath of the 2020 Hong Kong protests. Incorporating painting, photography, video, and installation, Heo’s art questions the nature of authority and it’s psychoanalytic implications.
