COMFORT WOMEN WANTED
Exhibited at the Incheon Women Artists’ Biennale (Korea).
When people pick up the phone handsets they hear the voices of the former "comfort women" on one side and the voice of the Japanese soldier on the other. The emphasis is on the everyday hopes and dreams of these women and who they are as people. Also, these women sing their favorite traditional folk songs in Korean, Taiwanese, Chinese, Hakanese, Aboriginal Taiwanese, and Japanese. This presents the women as individuals rather than as victims. In contrast, the Japanese soldier talks about his everyday life, hopes and dreams, and also what he witnessed at military rape camps.
