Minnie Yung is a Chinese multidisciplinary visual artist who currently lives and works on the unceded lands of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) peoples, or Vancouver, BC. She graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Fine Arts at Simon Fraser University.
Yung works to concretize the perception of her surroundings and the material reality via mediums such as painting, video, sculpture, and photography. Yung’s practice critically examines translation and the circulation of complex ideas within diverse cultural contexts. She investigates memory through the physicality of artifacts, architectural forms, and texts, while often working with ephemeral materials and relying on forms of documentation. Yung was born in Hong Kong, China in 1998 and immigrated with her family to Canada at the age of seven.
