As long as I can remember, I`ve always attempted presenting the symbol of body through the print media and pursuing the very first feeling or perception of a “body of system-free.” Then in the process of creating I became to realize that we all are not able to get rid of the effect the environments give to us.

What if we all get lost in the mazes constructed by all kinds of numerous reproduced information what the media manage to give to us? Is it possible that this manipulation subject to the authority will eventually lead us to a single-aspect harmony? This is what I intend to discuss through my work.

Beauty and the Beast
I had my breast removed in my junior year in college. It was a great shock for a girl at my age to deal with such a physical challenge. I had to take a break from my artistic practice for a long while. However, while I stayed in the hospital, I started to feel that I was living in a vacuum, and the silence of normalcy allowed me to hear myself, to pacify my heart, and to recover slowly. A desire for rebirth came to me at that time, and I was ready for it. Although it was followed by more chal ...

X/Y
After the breast removal surgery, I always feel confused about my gender identity. I am socially defined as a woman because of some external symbols.

The society has always categorized people into men and women, and our understanding of the world is completely based on such a division.

The Generation of Hand – Mutant of Memory
The work comes from my physical suffering of my personal experience. No one knows the secret under my clothes. While I try to hide my physical trauma, I also desire to be understood and to be loved.

Hands thus become new interpretative symbols to construct a new language.
