Jihee Min (St. Bruno, QC), I is for Confidence, 2007, mixed media performance.

Korea-born Canadian, Jihee Min explores art as means to formulate a voice for an identity. Min often includes herself as a posing sculpture to respond to her displaced existence, and her yearning for childhood creates an imaginary character that relates across the complexity of time and space of a visual minority in Canadian society. Jihee Min obtained MFA in Studio Arts at Concordia University in May 2008 and BFA with Honors in Sculpture & Installation at Ontario College of Art & Design in May 2005. She has received numerous awards and scholarships for her work including the Project and Travel Grant from Canada Council for the Arts, the Concordia MFA Studio Arts Award from Concordia University, the Sir Edmund Walker Scholarship, the Carmen Lamanna Scholarship and the Sumo Art & Technology award from Ontario College of Art & Design.
