new media artist
from: 01.10.2017 to: 31.12.2017
An artist who has made a transition from traditional media to new media, Jazmine Yerbury is interested in participatory interactions, robotics, and the philosophical and psychological dimensions of our sense of self. Her background in painting continues to inform her current practice, which is experimental and DIY in nature.
Born in Montreal, Quebec, she has worked independently as an art consultant and as a curator-assistant at several galleries in Montreal, including AGAC (Association de Galleries d’Art du Canada), Galerie Modulum, Arsenal Contemporary, and at the OCADU Graduate Gallery.
Yerbury has a BFA with a specialization in painting and drawing from Concordia University and an MFA from OCAD University, in the Digital Futures program. She is currently living and working in Toronto.
Her work encompasses painting, drawing, contemporary technologies, transmedia, multimedia installation, political cartoons, political satire, portraiture.
Her exhibitions include the group show “Oppression Aesthetics” at VAV Gallery, 2015; and the solo exhibition “Let’s Change Together.”
As SomoS Artist-in-Residence, Yerbury presents two participatory video installations for the Mutable Self group exhibition, exploring the fluent nature of our sense of self and the performativity of self-presentation.
