COMFORT WOMEN WANTED
Exhibited at the Incheon Women Artists’ Biennale (Korea).
The text COMFORT WOMEN WANTED is in black atop a red background. Some of the billboards present the portrait of a young “comfort woman” during her enslavement at a military rape camp, surrounded by gold leaf, suggesting the halo of a saint from Renaissance painting. In contrast, a silhouette of an aged former “comfort woman” appears against an actual photo of her current home. There were very few survivors, and many of these women could never return home because of their “shameful past.”
