What is normal life? "“Most waking hours, I am in my studio," Heesoo told us in the Summer 2022 quarterly. "The work draws me in, and I become immersed in it sometimes during the day, and other times at night." That is normal life for Heesoo, a patience and quiet determination from his studio in rural South Korea. His works are quiet, too, but there is a strength and curiousity of the characters, like a peering out into the world to see if its ready for them yet. As he opens Normal Life at Unit London, there seems to be a chance to let his characters out of the studio into a new place with a subtle nod to where we have come from over the last 3 years. —Evan Pricco
