Her Name Is: Leaflet

Leaflet for the exhibition Her Name Is, Asia Culture Center, Gwangju, 2019. Offset printing, 360 x 180 mm folding to 120 x 180 mm. Exhibition curated by Oh Sunyoung.

Her Name Is told a story of Bangladeshi women’s historical struggles for democracy, human rights, and peace. The graphic identity is centered around the blanks following the titles, visually substituting ellipses. The torn-paper edges of the rectangles suggest the nature of the exhibition, which was largely drawn from the archive of the Bangladesh Liberation War Museum. A map of East Asia illustrates the geographic context of the show, and is positioned in a way that allows the two countries — the show’s subject and its host — to fall in the blanks.
