Jinyoung Kim is a visual artist and an educator whose work explores a sense of place and material culture as a core condition where personal and collective memories coalesce expanding on an imaginary for the past and the present. She uses photography, video, and object-based installations to weave together an inventory of lived experiences that build on the positionality of an Asian diaspora. Her works have been exhibited and screened across Canada and internationally. She is the 2019 winner of the Prix Lynne Cohen from Estate of Lynne Cohen and Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec and was shortlisted for Prix Pierre-Ayot in 2018. Her projects have been supported by Canada Council for the Arts and Conseil des arts des lettres du Québec.
