Corset by Byun, Sung Hye

QUILTER’S STATEMENT:

Originally corsets are invented to revealing the curves of women’s bodies, to emphasize the wearer’s femininity. However corset itself became a symbol of suppression. Women had to conceal her personality in the corset, to be a good woman what the male-dominated society expect her to be. Wire frame is used to symbolize the regulations what women had to submit, while the crazy quilt, laces, ribbons and the fancy handle are to show the pleasure her heart follows.

Flowers in the Jungle by Joo, Bo Eun

QUILTER’S STATEMENT:

Jeanne Hebuterne was a wife and muse, model and inspiration for the world-famous painter, while her life was a tragedy itself. She was a flower in the jungle, living in a love of her life through the miserable days.
