Artist Statement
The Cheryl Yun Collection is a range of image-based sculptural objects or “products,” from handbags to clothing and most recently shopping sacks, which simultaneously mirror and subvert fashion and consumer culture to reveal, question, and reevaluate one’s relationship to the world.

The “Cheryl Yun Collection: lingerie and swimwear” is an image-based series of underwear which questions the “victims” and “aggressors” of our current political, economic and religious conflicts. The lingerie is replicated from images of suicide vests found online and in the newspaper. The photographs are appropriated from the New York Times, scanned and manipulated in order to create a complex visual fabric. The process exaggerates the historic treatment of documentary photographs as well as the current manipulation and censorship by the media and government. The images chosen represent the ambiguity of representation in our current political climate with subjects ranging from “patriotism” to “looting and looters.” The patterned image is dangerously provocative. The garments represent our fragmented position between passivity and aggression, desire and repulsion, and good and evil, becoming substitute sites for hostility on the local as well as international level.

The “Cheryl Yun Collection: Mirror/Repeat- Shopping Sack Series” takes the ambiguity of imagery and the creation of a product a step further.  The images are manipulated through inverting, mirroring and repetition to create a textile echoing the idea of mass production and quantity that the form implies.  The resulting image is printed on a translucent Japanese tissue, folded and hand-pieced together. Not only do the sacks mirror their original in form, but also in context–pristinely stacked before use, displayed blowing from trees or caught on video trapped in corner alleyways. The handcrafted “products” mirror and critique our consumer culture.
