This thesis examines my own practice-led project. Change of Direction, produced during the period of doctoral research (2005-2009). The research is concerned with Korean women artists who live and work outside Korea or in-between home and host countries, and it endeavours to explore issues related to the body as a site of changing identity in contemporary women's art from the Korean diaspora. The research focuses on Korean women's art since 1970, taking this as a significant time in the development of the Korean women's art movements; and how Korean women artists have explored their identities in art, as Koreans, as women and as artists. Korean women's art is also researched in the context of the complexity of Korean historical, political and social developments, the influence of Western cultures, and the relationship between the East and the West.
