About the artistBorn in Singapore and raised in the Toronto area, Clare Yow is a visual artist and photographer living and working on the unceded, traditional, and occupied territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) and səl̓ílwətaʔɬ /Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) First Nations. Clare's artistic practice has been foregrounded on the everyday, readymade, and seemingly unremarkable as subject matter, material, and process. She is drawn to ideas surrounding embodiment, consumption, in-between-ness, labour, and loss. They help navigate the landscape where her subjectivities and personal politics as a Chinese-Canadian, an immigrant, settler, feminist, and concerned citizen, all collide. Clare has been exhibiting since 2003 and has work held in private collections throughout Canada.
Art is a vehicle to delve into my subjectivities and lived experiences. It is a continual process of raising social consciousness through the lens of having this particular skin.
