Yasmine Haiboub is a Canadian artist, facilitator, and cultural worker who grew up in Ottawa, Ontario and Gatineau, Quebec, but is currently based in Vancouver, British Columbia, the unceded territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and səl̓ilw̓ətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.
Yasmine is completing her BFA at Emily Carr University of Art and Design (ECUAD) with a minor in Social Practice + Community Engagement (SPACE), where she received the prestigious ECUAA Award for Community Engagement. She is also Co-Founder of Ground Floor Art Centre, which is located in Vancouver’s Chinatown.
Yasmine is an interdisciplinary artist focusing on community engagement and sculptural works. She engages with her immediate surroundings through performative gestures, interactive sculptures and mass accumulation of familiar objects that create new narratives in public and private spaces. She is mainly concerned with creating intersectionality through self-awareness, care, hospitality, and self-proclaimed authority. She also uses storytelling as a tool for documentation of the self and artistic practice.
