A Principle of Pouting, digital print, 19x25cm, 2010
I tried to express my memories and emotions from childhood. This artwork is about my parents and sisters teasing me when I was young. They used to tease me by telling me I was ugly.

One day in 1987, my sister and I were watching TV and there was an advertisement calling for 7 year old children for the 88 Seoul Olympic opening ceremony. My sister said, “Oh! Since you are 7, you can apply for it” and I got interested. But our mother overheard our conversation and said “She can’t do it because she is ugly.” When I heard what she said, I felt like something was coming out from inside of my body through my mouth. Mother saw me and said, “Minjeong’s lips are sticking out.”
