Ayam Yaldo

Montreal, QC

Ayam Yaldo is a Montréal/Tiohtiá:ke based artist and current MFA graduate from Concordia University in the department of Intermedia. Working in a wide range of media including performance, video, sound and sculpture, Ayam’s work explores narratives that shift between the personal and the political, the past and present, reality and myth. Her current research is concerned with the formation of identity and subjectivity, and how these take shape in relation to grand historical narratives, the European tradition of archeology, and her personal experience of war and displacement from the Middle East as a child. Focusing on the body, identity and image, she explores concepts of reconstruction, transformation and ephemerality, in relation to forms of displacement.
