What does it mean to be a child, blissfully ignorant about our place in the world? For Dahee Kim, the innocence is something quite remarkable and something that ought to be treasured; where children can think and act how they want, unaware of their surroundings, living in their own fantasy. With that, comes the feeling of escapism from reality, which for Kim, growing up in Korea, meant escaping from those that labelled her as a ‘weirdo.’ “It’s because there’s been a lot of conflict with the idea of groupism in Korea since childhood,” she explains of the labelling culture. “Opinions would be based on groups, judged from right to wrong, rather than the individual. I have a lot of complaints about this structure and while people all agreed, they all said it was inevitable.” But rather than fester in silence, Kim decided to use her BA collection at Central Saint Martins to propel the very changes she wished to see. She took to raising awareness on the importance of self-expression in a bid to topple the unwritten rules of her schooling that chastised and ridiculed individuality.
