Jin-me Yoon's work explores the mechanisms and functions of identity construction. This catalogue documents and analyzes her research from a 1998 residency on Prince Edward Island. Touring Home From Away is a project that explores the cultural functions of landscape, and representations of place as they pertain to the body and subjectivity. Re-working PEI’s imaginary presentation of itself, Yoon explores the ways in which the myths of the Island are manifested.
The catalogue presents three works generated from this image series: two wall-mounted works, and an installation comprised of eighteen images mounted in nine suspended double-sided lightboxes. Essays by Shauna McCade and Annette Hurtig.
