Installation/ performance artist Flora Choi investigates the cultural attitudes and practices of Korea, particularly regarding gender roles. The Daeng'gi Meori braid, a long braid traditionally worn by girls and single women to signify their availability to potential suitors, is a visual she utilizes often in her work, cutting it, pickling it, jump roping with it. Her work has gained attention from publications including the Korea Daily, and The Korea Times. She has had two solo exhibitions: at Cuchifritos Gallery in NYC and Gateway Gallery in Baltimore, MD. Group and juried exhibitions of her work have appeared in venues in New York City and Baltimore, such as Korean Cultural Services, Second Space, Art in Odd Places, Nomad Gallery, and Deitch Projects. Choi received her BFA from Maryland Institute College of Art. She is currently based in Queens, New York.
