Charcoal on paper, mixed media
Site-specific installation, Mokpo, South Korea
Wolves Shitting is a site-specific work at a disused Korean dabang (‘tea shop’) in the city of Mokpo, South Korea. It was a direct reaction towards a male-dominated and seniority-driven social dynamics experienced in everyday life and in workspaces. As an East Asian foreigner in Korea at the time, the artist’s ethnic and geographic proximity to Korean culture granted her partial leniency but not complete exemption to conform to such social norm. Voicing discomfort while maintaining a level of cultural sensitivity became a precarious balancing act.
