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 site-specificity 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.
