KHIM MATA HIPOL

khimhipol211121_1136.jpg

Filipino-born Khim Hipol is an emerging interdisciplinary artist based on the unceded territories of the Squamish, TsleilWaututh, and Musqueam peoples, also known as North Vancouver. Hipol’s work is primarily focused on the lens-based medium and has expanded to printmaking, sculpture, and text. By investigating the impacts of colonialism and resulting Filipino migration, Hipol considers how identity and culture cross-pollinate between the Philippines and in Canada. His positionality between these two colonized and colonial structures is the motivation behind his practice, at once highlighting and complicating these systems.

 

A graduate of Certificate of Photography (2019), and Bachelor of Fine Arts Major with Photography and Minor in Art and Text (2023), both from Emily Carr University of Art and Design. Hipol is a recipient of the Audain Travel Award (2022) and was long-listed for the Lind Prize (2022). He has shared his works in group shows at The Center of Fine Arts Photography, Fort Collins, Colorado, USA (2022), Calgary (2022 and 2023), and Vancouver.
