HEEJUNG NAM




The media constantly traffics in stereotypical images of women, and from a young age, women are exposed to the dangers of prostitution and sex crimes. We face misogyny at every turn. Fear turns into anger, and groups of like-minded men develop deep-seated repulsion. Since birth, I have lived in this toxic environment. In my work, I express the complexity and contradictions of this situation by stacking related images and texts. I collect and collage scraps of hateful and anachronistic newspaper articles about women.

I also collage articles from 1980 to the present that correspond to the struggle for women’s rights. Over the past four decades, many women have publicly voiced their dissatisfaction with the climate in Korea. In order to break down the power of the establishment and the indifference of the public, I am trying to open a declaration of revolution and confront viewers with protest posters.
