You Talkin’ to Me? 2008-2009

Charlie Hahn looks at identity and individuality, concepts that have been defined historically by such terms as the “gaze” and the “other.” He explores the “hybridity” and “ambivalence” of his Korean-American identity by mimicking certain iconic characteristics of the American persona. In his photographs, Hahn clones these personas and juxtaposes them into specific situations, suggesting that the meaning of identity can be multiple and complex.
