Artwork Appreciation
CHEN Ching-Yao’s portrait Dear Leader Chen, We Love You!-Father and Son replaced the faces of famous historical personalities upon this politicized propaganda with his own features, encouraging viewers to reflect upon who the great people actually were. CHEN Ching-Yao has depicted himself as a famous political personality by imposing his own face onto the great leader seated in the center of the composition. The artist believes that great political leaders and heroes such as Kim Jung-Il of North Korea and Ho Chi-Minh of Vietnam were creations of myth and rumors, and has thus employed this satirical approach to express his own views on the myth-building responsible for constructing the identities of these great leaders.
