As Simone de Beauvoir (1949) says, “One is not born, but rather becomes, a woman.” For Bia, every society is full of imbalances. At her single-sex high school, at university and after qualifying as a secondary school teacher in South Korea, she was struck by the images representing the ideal woman in these institutions. Dismantling pervasive imbalances in public representation, for the sake of equilibrium, particularly the imbalances implicit in representations of women, lies at the core of this project. T♀XIC FEMININITY is a project consisting of Toxic Hypnosis and The Red Textbook. To disrupt the gender hegemony that legitimises the patriarchal system and perpetuates gender dichotomy, this project investigates and deconstructs idealised femininity – passive girls, attractive women, wise mothers – that is embodied by Korean young females.
