Gallery view of "Addressing Dolls" exhibition by Cheon at the C. Grimaldis Gallery, Baltimore, in 2008. Towards the back gallery, this particular space had three pieces in a triangular position, with "Miss Korea" doll dress in the center and "Japanese Kimono" and "Korean Fan Dance" doll dresses to each side. The three pieces reflected the relationship between Korea and Japan seen through beauty and modernization. This is a part of the "Dresses for Different Event," paper doll dresses images originally from South Korea in the 70s, blown up to life size and custom framed. The exhibition not only showed the stark contrast between capitalist South Korean nation versus communist North Korean nation in girls play things but also alluded to the Korean Japanese conflict as well.
