Jang Pa

Jang Pa’s works visually expresses the otherized sense such as ‘the female grotesque’, reflecting on the possibility of expanding the pictorial language based on feminist identity. On the subject side, female gaze and women's sexuality are dealt with based on the re-examination of femininity. In Particular, she is delving into the most material and abject characteristics of the body such as secretions and menstrual blood, looking into the world of grotesque female desires. Through this, she aims to overcome the reduction of women into a single femininity as was written in the male history and language and imagine various femininities. At the same time, Jang Pa expresses visually the otherized sense in the field of painting, and has tried to reconstruct the female sense that were marginalized in the phallocentric visual system into pictorial language.
