Ayam Yaldo is an interdisciplinary artist based in Montreal. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts and a Masters degree in Studio Arts in the department of Intermedia from Concordia University.
Working in a wide range of media including video, performance, voice and storytelling, ceramics and installation, Yaldo explores narratives that shift between the personal and the political, the past and present, reality and myth. Her research is concerned with the formation of the self and subjectivity, and how these take shape in relation to grand historical narratives, place and memory. Focusing on the body, identity and image, Yaldo utilizes tools for worldbuilding through concepts of reconstruction, transformation and ephemerality, in relation to forms of displacement.
