Jinyoung Kim uses time-based media to create her works. Her photographs and videos combine documentary and fiction in order to form metaphoric narratives that deal with questions of identity, sense of belonging, and relationship between place and self-perception.

Born in South Korea and raised in Canada, her works reflect on her own experience of having to grow roots in both places. She continues to look for stories in her life and other's lives as an on-going investigation into how a sense of place relates to one's identity formation.

She has a BFA from OCAD University in Toronto and MFA from Concordia University.
