Jin-me Yoon: Unbidden and Persona: From the Collection (CMCP)

01 Dec 2006 - 09 Apr 2007

This exhibition consists of a major new installation by the artist Jin-me Yoon and marks the first solo tour of her work. The installation uses staged video performances and photographs to explore the relationship between memory, identity, and place, and to examine the displacement of peoples, both spatially and temporally, through wars and exile. “Unbidden” refers to images and memories of uncertain origin that involuntarily surface to consciousness. Organized and circulated by the Kamloops Art Gallery. Guest curator: Susan Edelstein. Presented by the Canadian Museum of Contemporary Photography
