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 of the last decade, which typically combines photography, video, performance and installation. About Time focuses primarily on Jin-me Yoon's most recent artistic practice. In these layered works, Yoon continues to address the subject matter of diasporic experience, colonialism, imperialism and militarism, but with a 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, use of slowness and repetition, and sensory use of sound, Yoon's recent 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.
