Born in Seoul, Korea, Jin-me Yoon immigrated to Vancouver in 1968 where she lives and works. Since 1992, she has been teaching in the Visual Art program at the School for the Contemporary Arts, Simon Fraser University. Since the early 1990s Yoon’s lens based practice in photography, video, and installation has reexamined questions concerning history, place, identity, and the body supported by an underlying interest in how these very questions are based on entangled and interdependent relations. Landscapes, particular sites and cities, people, and materials provide a departure point for broader issues and geopolitical histories to be identified. Over the past three decades, Yoon has widely exhibited her work across Canada as well as international venues such as the Centre Culturel Canadien (Paris), Pollock Gallery, Meadows School of the Arts (Dallas, Texas), Ssamzie Space (Seoul), Seoul Museum of Art, IASmedia (Seoul), Marronnier Art Center (Seoul), Kumho Museum of Art (Seoul), Kunstlerhaus Stuttgart, Beppu Contemporary Art Festival (Japan), Yokohama Citizens Gallery, Tank Loft (Chongquing, China), Yuangong Art Museum (Shanghai), Centro de la Imagen (Mexico City), Centro Cultural Montehermoso (Vitoria-Gasteiz, Spain), Govett-Brewster ArtGallery (New Plymouth, New Zealand), Centre d’art contemporain de Basse-Normandie (France), Australian Center for Contemporary Art (Melbourne), Third Istanbul Biennial of Contemporary Art, and Garage Museum of Contemporary Art (Moscow). In 2009, she was a finalist for the Art Gallery of Ontario’s Aimia PhotograhyPrize and in 2013 was awarded a Smithsonian Artist Research Fellowship.

Née à Séoul, en Corée, Jin-me Yoon a émigré à Vancouver en 1968, là où elle vit et travaille. Depuis 1992, elle enseigne au département d’arts visuels à la School for the Contemporary Arts de l’Université Simon Fraser.

Depuis le début des années 90, la pratique artistique de Yoon en photographie, en vidéo et en installation a soulevé des questions à propos de l’histoire, de la position, de l’identité et du corps en s’appuyant sur la façon dont ces questions sont fondées sur des relations interdépendantes et enchevêtrées. Des paysages, des lieux, des villes particulières, des gens et des matériaux servent de point de départ à des questionnements plus larges et à des histoires géopolitiques à cerner.

Au cours des trois dernières décennies, Yoon a exposé son travail partout au Canada et dans le monde, notamment au Centre Culturel Canadien (Paris), à la Pollock Gallery, à la Meadows School of the Arts (Dallas, Texas), au Ssamzie Space (Séoul), au Seoul Museum of Art, à IASmedia (Séoul), au Marronnier Art Center (Séoul), au Kumho Museum of Art (Séoul), au Kunstlerhaus Stuttgart, au Beppu Contemporary Art Festival (Japon), à la Yokohama Citizens Gallery, au Tank Loft (Chongquing, Chine), au Yuangong Art Museum (Shanghai), au Centro de la Imagen (Mexico), au Centro Cultural Montehermoso (Vitoria-Gasteiz, Espagne), à la Govett-Brewster ArtGallery (New Plymouth, Nouvelle-Zélande), au Centre d’art contemporain de Basse-Normandie (France), au Australian Center for Contemporary Art (Melbourne), à la Third Istanbul Biennial of Contemporary Art, et au Garage Museum of Contemporary Art (Moscou).
