Nanaimo Art Gallery presents Spectral Tides, a solo exhibition of new work by renowned Korean born Canadian artist Jin-me Yoon.
Through video, photography, and installation, Spectral Tides features projects set on two islands that are important to the artist’s life and work: Vancouver Island, focusing on the complex histories of the Pacific Rim National Park, and Jeju-do, the largest South Korean island and a strategic US military outpost.
Jin-me Yoon’s media-based work centres around preoccupations with history, memory, language and cultural identity. She has exhibited extensively across Canada and internationally, and is represented in numerous public collections. Since 1992, she has taught at Simon Fraser University’s School for the Contemporary Arts. In 2009, she was nominated for Art Gallery of Ontario’s Grange Prize, and in 2013 was awarded a Smithsonian Artist Research Fellowship.
This project is presented as a part of Nanaimo Art Gallery’s celebration of our 40th anniversary in 2017. All year, through exhibitions, special projects, education programs and events, we explore the question “What does it mean to live on an Island?”
