Documents of Displacement I: Jinyoung Kim

Join us for the first installment of our series Documents of Displacement, during which Marisa Portolese, Jinyoung Kim, and Pedro Barbáchano will present photographic projects that focus on the spatial displacement of people, objects, and monuments, questioning the effects of these contextual changes on their meanings and on collective memory. From research to documentation, portraiture, narrative, and installation, the artists will describe the methodologies and processes they have developed while working on their projects.

With Sustained (Temporary) Condition (2021), Jinyoung Kim presents an assemblage of everyday objects that had once occupied the world of transient residents of Tiohti:áke/ Mooniyang/ Montréal area during the COVID-19 pandemic. The project brings these objects into the public square of Place des Festivals as a reminder of migrant communities that moved from one place to another, either voluntarily or through force.
