Jin-me Yoon

2022 Winner

Jin-me Yoon is a Korean-born, Vancouver-based artist living and working on the unceded territories of the Coast Salish peoples. Since the early 1990s, her lens-based practice has critically examined the construction of self and other in relation to her own direct and inherited history, as well as within broader geopolitical contexts. Unpacking stereotypical assumptions and dominant discourses, Yoon’s work has examined gender and sexuality, culture and ethnicity, citizenship and nationhood. Adopting a wider and wider lens over time, her practice has become a deep investigation into entangled local and global histories existing at specific sites within the context of transnationalism and environmentalism.
