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. Touring Home From Away 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. With essays by Shauna McCade and Annette Hurtig.
