Julie Meneret Contemporary Art presents The Choco Pie-ization of North Korea, a solo exhibition by Jin Joo Chae.
Ms. Chae has been working with fragile and fragrant media such as newspaper and screen-printed chocolate for her current series, The Choco Pie-ization of North Korea. Her work is inspired by tense dynamics in Korea, using the Choco Pie cookie as an absurd but stirring entry point into the political scenario; the South Korean dessert has become highly valuable in the black market in the North, effectively introducing capitalism to a society closed off from the world.
