'Eonni is Back' is the second incarnation of the annual 'Gyeonggi Art Project', an exhibition which addresses a socio-political and cultural issue of the Gyeonggi region. In this exhibition, 26 female artists depict the physical, psychological, and social experiences of women and make an issue of their history. Their works in the catalogue are grouped into the following four categories: Womad, Herstory, Sister Act and Femme Fatale. The artist Cho Duckhyun, a Korean artist of some international renown, was commissioned to create a 'meta-artwork' by reinterpreting the works of Rha Hyeseok and Yun Suknam from his 'male' point of view. Essays are in Korean, many of which are translated into English. Excerpts from artists' statements and previous reviews are included. Artists' biographies are provided.
('Eonni' translates into 'big sister', and the term is used by girls/women to address older girls/women.)
