We are proud to announce the upcoming DAENG’GI KIMCHI FACTORY, an installation by FLORA CHOI, at Cuchifritos Gallery and Project Space

December 22, 2011 – January 15, 2012
In her performance/installation piece, Daeng’gi Kimchi Factory, Flora Choi challenges societal constructs of the past and investigates the state of women in Korea today by making her own version of Kimchi . Substituting chopped-off daeng’gi braids (a popular Korean hairstyle worn by adolescent girls) for cabbage, Choi confronts the male-dominated traditions of the past, while preserving it for future generations of Korean women.
