Faune Ybarra: Archive of Embodied Displacement: Diasporic Gestures Performing the Archive
Saturday, June 27th, 6 pm Newfoundland Time

Currently located in Vancouver, Faune Ybarra is a diasporic artist originally from Oaxaca and Mexico City, Mexico. Due to the experiences of constantly moving and adapting Faune has conceived of her body as a site of translation from where she attempts to communicate with other people and the non-human. Focusing on questioning the understanding of communication beyond our human constructs of language, Faune works with “portable formats” such as video, sound, performance, and photo-based practices. She holds a BFA in Visual Arts from Memorial University of Newfoundland and she is currently expanding her research/practice on the interrelation of displacement and diasporic gestures at Simon Fraser University as part of the MFA cohort in Interdisciplinary Studies.
