Mourning Dress

Size 4  

Hand-stitched

Muslin, silk thread

The dress is handmade and references a Korean mourning outfit. On the dress are racial slurs and phrases that have been said to me throughout my life. The work is a continuing project because as long as I continue to experience racism new phrases will be stitched on. 

Some Phrases include:

"Is your dad Jackie Chan?"

" Are you North or South Korean?I don't like commies"

" Asian Bitch"

" Are you Chinese? Get in my car. How much per hour are you? 

" Do you know what a muffin is?"

"Dogeater"

"Dirty Guk"

"Chink"

"Jap"

"Ching- Chong"

"Throw a rock at the asian girl's head!"

"Go back to your Country"

" I don't want my son dating a Korean."
