The first significant publication devoted to the work of Jin-me Yoon, one of Canada's most preeminent artists. Jin-me Yoon is an important Canadian lens-based artist who has been working steadily since emerging on Vancouver's contemporary art scene in the 1990s. Produced in tandem with a major exhibition at the Vancouver Art Gallery in 2022, About Time focuses on Yoon's monumental and multifaceted production during the 2010s, which typically combines photography, video, performance, and installation. In these layered works, Yoon addresses the subject matter of diasporic experience, colonialism, imperialism, and militarism, but with an increasingly politicized awareness of what it means to live and work as a diasporic artist on land stolen from Indigenous peoples. Characterized by a restrained poetic style, the use of slowness and repetition, and the sensory use of sound, this period in Yoon's corpus is undergirded by a strong environmentalist thrust. Recurring tropes of this mature phase of her work include cinematic tableaux of individuals integrated within the Pacific West Coast's stunning natural landscapes.Binding Type: HardcoverAuthor: Zoë ChanPublisher: Hirmer Verlag GmbHPublished: 02/02/2023ISBN: 9783777439983Pages: 208Weight: 2.20lbs
