Existing in costume | Chan Hyo Bae

Existing in Costume saw the artist pose in female historical western costumes. He plays on Western prejudice against Eastern men by creating elaborate scenes of himself as a noblewoman from the Elizabethan to Regency periods. By again introducing himself into Fairy Tales he shows that our bias is not only in the portrayal of history, but in perpetration of story telling, of what we read to our children.
