Good Girls, Bad Ghouls by Chloe Chan

Chloe Chan studies Visual Communication at NTU’s School of Art, Design and Media, and her graduation project examines Southeast Asian female supernatural beings, in particular female ghosts, and what they tell us about women.

Chloe elaborates: “Through the medium of a zine encompassing text and illustration, an exploration of the issues that women face will be conducted by examining these spectral figures. Common to the tales and traits of female ghosts are themes of motherhood, gender roles, femininity, autonomy, sexuality, sexual violence, and madness. Thus the female ghost is more than just a superstitious figure; as a deviant female, she exists as a threat to gender norms and the patriarchal structure.”

Good Girls, Bad Ghouls is part of this year’s ADM Show 2016 which runs from 6 May to 15 May. Visit www.admgradshow.com for more information or follow their process on Facebook or Instagram.
