Chan-Hyo Bae

Germany, Berlin Aando Fine Art

London-based Korean artist, Chan-Hyo BAE, obtained his M.F.A. 2007 in Fine Art Media, at Slade School of Fine Art in UCL, London. Chan-Hyo BAE was born in 1975 in Busan, Korea. His work is represented in well-known international institutions and collections, such as Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, USA or Statoil Art Collection, Norway. With pointed irony, Chan-Hyo Bae uncovers cultural prejudices, stereotypes and cliché. As Korean man he presents himself in historical costumes as Queen of England. With ostentation, Bae is mixing up what usually - consciously or unconsciously - is tried to be strictly seper- ated: cultural identities, art genres and “fixed” gender roles. In doing so, he reveals our social problems of adequate perception and the conditionality of our faculty of judgement.
