Jin-me Yoon, UNBIDDEN

Jin-me Yoon, UNBIDDEN. 2006

This exhibition consists of a major new installation by artist Jin-me Yoon, Associate Professor of Visual Art at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver and marks the first solo tour of her work.  Thematically consistent with her previous productions that explore the relationship between memory, identity and place, the installation uses staged video performances and photographs to examine the displacement of peoples both temporarily and spatially,  through wars and exile.  Unbidden refers to images and memories of uncertain origin that involuntarily surface to consciousness.  Yoon presents the viewer with scenarios that are both strange and familiar; it is uncertain if the actions that occur allude to real events, or whether they derive from television productions, Hollywood movies or archival images.
