Currently located in Vancouver, Faune Ybarra is a time-based 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. She has developed, performed, exhibited, and spoken about her practice at galleries, artist-run centres, and conferences such as PULP Gallery, ArtStarts, Eastern Edge Gallery, Grenfell Art Gallery, The Rooms Provincial Art Gallery, and SpokenWeb symposium.
