This exhibition showcases time-based works by Vancouver-based artist Jin-me Yoon. Part of an ongoing series of video/performative works that document the artist as she executes lateral explorations through sites that are charged with historical significance, the works illuminate how Yoon’s physical actions invoke submerged histories of trauma, forge a relationship between past and present and employ the body in the creation of ephemeral acts of commemoration.
A 2013 recipient of a Smithsonian Artist Research Fellowship, Jin-me Yoon is a vital member of the Vancouver art community. For the past two decades her works have contributed to ongoing discussions of place and identity on national and international levels. Yoon’s more recent video work explores the interrelationship between bodies, cities and history in an accelerated globalized era. The artist’s work has been shown in solo and group exhibitions in galleries and festivals including the Vancouver Art Gallery, the National Gallery of Canada, The National Museum of Women in the Arts, Jack Shainman Gallery, the Art Gallery of Ontario, the Portland Institute for Contemporary Art, the Queens Museum of Art, MOCA Shijiazhuang, Seoul Museum of Art and the Houston Center for Photography. A faculty member at Simon Fraser University’s School for the Contemporary Arts, Yoon holds a B.A. from the University of British Columbia, a B.F.A. from Emily Carr College of Art and Design and an M.F.A. from Concordia University. The artist is represented by Catriona Jeffries Gallery.
