Che Go Eun

Che Go Eun (°1988, KR), originally trained in traditional Korean painting, mainly uses digital techniques of collage. Digging into sources ranging from historical artifacts, folklore and cyberculture, she creates a dynamic context for issues that concern her today. Che Go Eun addresses particularly thematics of gender and how social structures across cultures have regulated love and desire under the guise of religion and morality. The generated imagery oscillates between East and West through the common registers of intimacy and violence, bridged by the artist with a reverbing and layered virtual realm.
