YiFan Jiang was born in Tianjin China, in 1994, now based in Vancouver. Her Paintings, performances and video installations aim to suspend our presupposed intimacy with the mundane and provide a space to reflect on our banal reality.  Jiang works to exaggerated, subtract, fold and compose the mundane with subtle absurdity and deadpan humour. It is an effort to pause our experience of the world and reintroduce it as a stranger as apposed to family.
