Ivetta Sunyoung Kang (she/they) is an interdisciplinary artist based in Tkaronto/Toronto and Tiohtià:ke/Montreal on the land now called Canada. She obtained an MFA from Concordia University. Her work has been presented/will be presented at Sound Scene in partnership with the Smithsonian Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden (2022), ArtScience Museum (2022), Dazibao (2022), The Korean Cultural Center Washington, DC (2021), Xpace Cultural Center (2020), Arlington Arts Center (2020), among others. She has participated/is participating in artist residency programs at the AGO X RBC Artist-in-Residence (2022), ZK/U (2022) and DAÏMÔN (2019), among others. She has been awarded the RBC Newcomer Arts Award (2021) and was shortlisted for the Simon Blais Award (2016). Kang's practice is concerned with archive, video installation, text, performative work and participation. The artist observes colonial patterns of burdening linguistic encounters and bio/socio-political impacts of binary psychiatric approaches on individuals in order to propose reparative perception and movement that may free one from the oppressing eyes. Kang researches how the practice of psychoanalysis has overnormalized multicultural people. Her work attempts to subvert the binary foundation of the history of psychiatry built upon ableism and stigmatization. These problematized matters are aligned with the otherness and normalization toward racialized groups within her works. Kang is curious to create and apply imaginative means to ease mental disorders exacerbated by the dominant life model in excessive urbanism and post-colonialism. The artist seeks transcultural transmissions, diasporic and unsettling languages, and decolonial narratives against the western trajectory of psychoanalysis as caring and reparative means in art. @Ivetta Kang

Eugene Park (she/her) Eugene Park is an artist who is based in Vancouver, Canada and Seoul, South Korea. She explores the susceptibility and vulnerability of the entity through researching the social structure and material entanglement. She uses unorthodox materials like kombucha sheets, soil, earth magnet and objects like a compass, mirrors, and found objects. She makes small and big installations with those multi-sen-sual materials. She lets the materials’ imminent agencies imbue the space and spectator’s bodies by juxtaposing the structure. She hopes to find the not-yet-ignited narrative by paying attention to objects
and their behaviours. She got a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts from Ewha Women’s University in Seoul, South Korea, and a Master’s degree in Studio Arts from Concordia University in Montreal. She  received the Sylvie and Simon Blais award for emerging visual artists from Sylvie and Simon Blais Foundation in Montreal and Yeon Tak Chang Scholarship from Korean Canadian Scholarship Foundation in Toronto. @Studio_Eugene Park
Jin Heewoong is an interdisciplinary artist based in Seoul and Tiohtià:ke/Montreal. Graduated from Cheongju University with a Bachelor's in Painting. He received a graduate degree in Painting from the same university and currently pursuing his MFA program in Concordia in the sculpture department. He has been presented/will be presented at Centre Mai (2023), Maison de la culture Janine-Sutto (2022), Ignition at Leonard & Bina Art
Gallery (2022), Peripheral Hours, Tiohtià:ke/Montreal (2019) and Cheongju International Craft biennale 2017. He is a co-founding member of Quite Ourselves, a group of artists seeking sustainable mobility for their present. He experiments with processes of juxtaposition, combination and arrangement with objects that can be found in our surroundings. By producing variations in the arrangement of his objects, Jin’s work generates meanings, order and chaos within his object combinations. These artworks often reveal and frame aesthetic and conceptual elements inherent to the used objects. He recently started expanding his practic with video by combining the internal voice in his text and footage that explores the subtle nuances of his experience of displacement. @jinheewoong

Sophia Dacy-Cole (a.k.a. Flo) (she/her)
Fresh out of three plus years of joyously and perilously running around North America and Brazil, Sophia has returned to her country of citizenship, Australia. She wanders the hills of Canberra, looking at the eroded soil and the ash, and wondering how the fuck we got here. She enjoys foraging, trying to learn the history and uses of Indigenous plants, eating small amounts of plants she has just met, learning about the Aboriginal history and present of the Australian Capital Territory, talking about the links between colonialism and disembodiment, trying
to have a body, Somatic Therapy, breathwork, trying to grow a garden, Tetragonula Carbonaria, Apis Mellifera, and bees in general.
She learnt an enormous amount working and playing in the Montreal-based SenseLab. Now she is a PhD candidate at the Australian National University.
She works in relation. She collaborates with people, places, and objects, always asking the Spinozist question:"what can a body do?" Sophia has shown and performed across Europe, North and South America, and Australia. @_Flophia

Ryan Clayton (he/him) creates virtual spaces which extend beyond the glowing screens we inhabit. These virtual spaces are not necessarily tied to the digital, but instead wrapped up in potential being; humans continuously create and inhabit different kinds of non-physical realms, from labyrinthine encyclopedias stored on servers around the world, to little lies we tell each other to ease and maintain social contracts. Ryan Clayton’s works inhabit this extended view of //being// and invite viewers to consider the implications of this broader virtual space. Ryan holds his MFA from Concordia University. Ryan has exhibited in Canada and internationally, both as a founding member of the collective VSVSVS and individually. Recent and notable shows include, Manhattan Project Revisited Montreal, at the same time, Contemporary Calgary, Calgary and to space in, Katzman Contemporary, Toronto.

Snack Witch aka Joni Cheung is a grateful, uninvited guest on the unceded territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm, Skwxwú7mesh, Stó:lō, Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh, and Kanien’kehá:ka peoples. They get paid to make art most of the time, sometimes to teach and communicate digitally/IRL, but generally to drive friends and their things around #fulllicenselyfe. Her time is currently occupied by their candidacy as a Master of Fine Arts in Sculpture and Ceramics at Concordia University, where she is investigating the interdependent relationship between objects, place and identity, while navigating discourses of transnationalism, migration, and diasporas. Joni likes to collect and reference still and moving images, texts, audio and soundscapes, objects, places and spaces, popular culture, and digital media in their interdisciplinary research-based practice. Their research presents itself as installations, sculptures, performances, texts, photography and video, as well as accumulations of ephemera that bring attention to things often overlooked. Her favourite materials are banal, everyday objects that hold significant cultural weight and through their sheer existence, they are documents of the shared lived-experiences and memories between individuals within and outside of their communities. Aside from researching and writing, she likes doing snack and beverage reviews, medium length walks at the beach, being wrapped into a blanket burrito & cinnamon bun , and her perfect first date involves a thorough walkthrough at multiple grocery stores + Costco, getting bubble tea, and breads + pastries from all the bakeries. She has exhibited and curated shows at the CRES Media Arts Committee, Vancouver; the FOFA Gallery, Montréal, Centre A: the Vancouver International Centre for Contemporary Asian Art, Vancouver; the Audain Gallery, Vancouver; and has been featured in CBC Arts; and the Canada Line Transit BC Public Art Program, among other spaces and platforms. They are a recipient of numerous awards, including the British Columbia Arts Council Scholarship (2020) and the Dale and Nick Tedeschi Studio Arts Fellowship (2019). She was waitlisted for the SSHRC - Joseph-Armand Bombardier: Canada Graduate Master’s Scholarship (2020). @Snack Witch

Vic Chan (he/him) is a Toronto based artist and filmmaker. Born as a second generation Chinese Canadian to parents who were marginalized by language and disability, and alienated from his mother tongue, his transdisciplinary practices of design, film, and creative writing give him a unique ability to embody this paradox of being a native minority.
Showing an early aptitude in art, he went on to earn a Diploma in Visual Communication Design
from Grant MacEwan University in Edmonton, and a Bachelor of Media Arts in Film, Video, and
Integrated Media from Emily Carr University in Vancouver.
Within his art practice, he seeks to bridge the divide between two worlds: his home country, and his pays d’origine. His work attempts to explain archaic belief systems using the western scientific method, and to resolve antiquated cultural ideals and backward thinking. @viku.chan

Chloë Cheuk (she/her) is a graduate of the School of Creative Media, City University, Hong Kong and from Concordia University, Montreal, Quebec. Working simultaneously in the mediums of installation art, interactive media, photography and video, Chloé Cheuk focuses on the “structure of feelings” between people and society by reconstructing objects through metaphors using a pared down vocabulary based in spirituality and aesthetics. Her artworks often touch upon spectators’ everyday experiences and memories, on both an individual and collective level, which lay the groundwork for an intimate conversation. Carrying various implications, the ordinary objects she chooses frequently echo the personal, social and political facets of our contemporary world. @chloecheuk_

🌸️ We see the idea of membership as a very flexible, shifting, always changing borderline that embraces both inclusiveness and exclusiveness, inevitably due to the nature of our members’ models of lives that keep moving around different cities and countries. It also means the acknowledgement and appreciation that Quite Ourselves has been developed and carried by so many members/friends who are not active at the current moment so not written here but still tight friends of Quite Ourselves.
