Jinyoung Kim uses time-based media to create her works. Kim’s experience of immigrating to Canada during her youth fostered her motivation to create art works that express perspectives on displacement, of both her own and of others. Kim finds herself located between two realities – one in Canada and the other in South Korea, and Kim’s projects are often bridge that relate the two homes that she grew up in. To contextualize oneself through art under this condition, Kim have dealt with subjects such as family relationships and places of origin. Her current research interest resides in engaging with the discourse of “place” and how the physical absence and presence of a place affects one’s self-perception. Her photographs and videos combine documentary and fiction in order to form metaphoric narratives that deal with questions of identity, sense of belonging, and relationship between place and self. Most recently, she had exhibited at Hamilton Artists Inc. in Hamilton, Ontario, Maison de la Culture Claude-Lévéillée, FoFA Gallery, Patrick Mikhail Gallery in Montréal, and Esplanade Arts and Heritage Centre in Medicine Hat, Alberta. She has obtained her BFA from OCAD University in Toronto, and MFA from Concordia University.
