Che Go Eun explores the representation of women in Korean culture and the everyday stereotypes in the news, mass and social media, male- dominated social order and norms, historical patriarchal and nationalist discourses, and Confucianism. She reflects on concepts such as virginity and chastity in Korean society and in the principles of the Unification Church (founded in South Korea in 1954) and investigates the manifestation of sexual crime and the depiction of violence in the South Korean internet sub-culture and on revenge
porn sites (Sora.net had more than a million users and hosted thousands of videos taken and shared without the knowledge or consent of the women featuredii). As a feminist, she participates in the politicization of the question of gender identity as something that constantly shifts…..(READ MORE)

Che Go Eun explores through different media the effects of today’s online pornography and how they translate into pop culture, education and beauty ideals. In her collages, she assembles explicit internet sex content that stands in sharp contrast to the conservative sex education in Korea, into ostentatious, altar-like formations.

  The Latin title of her work Agnus dei qui tollis peccata mundi refers to a liturgical prayer that can be translated into ‘Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world’. It is commonly used during Mass in the Roman Catholic Church and was set to a great variety of melodies especially during the Middle Ages.   -Jacob Fabricius

I want to talk about issues of gender, hierarchy and race discrimination, all of which I have experienced as an Asian and as a woman. That's why I created the character 'Chego'.

My project attempts to redefine Cheo-nyeo-mak. From this point the project will address the concept of virginity in the Korean setting and it also connects to similar cases in other countries. For example, cheo-nyeo-mak, is called maagdenvlies in Dutch. Maagden means virgin and vlies is membrane and Jungfernhäutchen in German as same reason. From the dictionary of the UK, it addresses Hymen as a symbol for virginity. [1] It proves that even western countries which are considered progressive also has same issue with Korea. It is the phenomenon: language oppresses gender unconsciously.

Signifiant or origin of this term is different each country, but signifié is same. Whatever we call about hymen and cheo-nyeo-mak, it always exists as a term of women’s virginity.

In this video work, people know about cheo-nyeo-mak but they can not explain clearly. Even one of them do not know and do not call the name of female genital. Through this response, I titled it “Everyone knows but I can’t explain it”

XXX-938 preformed at 2m3, Brussels, Belgium

-사건일지-

20##년#월#일

1#년간 XXX-938과 접촉하는 방법에 설명하려하는 것을 연구하던 과학자 ##는 발표당일, 발표를 시작한지 몇분이 안되어 ##는 극도의 수치심과 공포심을 수반한 발작을 일으킨 뒤 발표는 도중 종료되었다. 며칠 후 ##박사는 자택에서 사체로 발견되었고, 사인은 자살로 판명되었다. 그가 진행했던 XXX-938에 대한 모든 연구 자료는 ##박사에 의해 말소 된 상태였지만 다행히도 XXX-938의 오디오 녹음본은 남겨져 있었다. 지금부터 재생되는 오디오는 유일하게 남겨진 XXX-938의 기록이다.

-report of accident-

12, 4, 20##.

Dr. K was the head of the research team for XCM. On the day of the announcement, within minutes of starting, K stopped the presentation suddenly suffering from extreme shame and panic attacks. A few days later, he was found dead at home, the victim of an unexplained heart attack.  He had deleted all of the research on XXX-938, but fortunately there were some audio recordings left. The audio playing now is the only known auditory record of XXX-938.
