HK 119 is a powerful Nordic force resolved to shatter any illusions you may have about your comfortable post-millennial society. This beautiful blonde creature, at once Amazonian and eerily robotic, is the creation of Finnish artist Heidi Kilpelainen. Her dystopian vision of the world takes elements of the modern human condition and pushes them to the extreme, where people have sacrificed their humanity for consumerism, and technology pervades every detail of our lives. With the mass media invading every walk of life, and everything you see demanding you that buy it, how can you maintain a sense of yourself in the chaos? HK119 is your commentator, simultaneously fascinated and furious with modern technologies, the authority on the relationship between man and machine.
