'Her landscape' shows a series of works developed by asking:
why can we not see women in traditional Korean landscape paintings?
The artist borrowed the traditional styles of East Asian landscape paintings but changed the gender of figures inside, manifesting that the history we know does not fully represent the narrative, memories, desires of women. Rather than portraying the ideal old utopia that traditional landscapes represented, she depicts the landscape that alludes artist's intimate and private domain. By looking at the figure in the landscape, Cho's series asks who has been the subject that experiences, creates, and possess that landscape.
