Image from Clare Yow

A new exhibition of photographs and small sculptural works from Vancouver artist Clare Yow focuses on the politics of identity and location.

“[They] are inexplicably tied to the ways in which the space and the self are mutually constitutive,” says Yow. “The self as a site, is one of continuous splitting, doubling, and grafting, of histories, markings, and vulnerabilities.” 

As a Chinese-Canadian, a woman, an immigrant, and an artist, Clare Yow begins, “not with a continent or a house, but with the geography closest in.”

Exploring the symbolic borders of East and West, and the notions of ‘home’ and the fluidity of ‘here,’ Yow’s exhibit is thought-provoking.

The exhibit runs the month of July, on the Level 2 foyer in the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre. 

About the Artist

Clare Yow is a Vancouver-based artist who holds a Master in Fine Arts in Visual Art from UBC and an Honours Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photographic Studies from Ryerson University. With ongoing interests in navigating what it means to be located within the hyphenated and triple bind homeland of Chinese-Canadian femininity, Clare’s work is foregrounded in the everyday and seemingly unremarkable as subject matter, material and process.
