In "Animacy & Coloniality", Jaeyeon Shin explores ideas of racialized animals, inverting the animalized humans depicted in colonialist ontologies. Shin is interested in reclaiming colonialized bodies and indigenous animals by reconstructing “new” artifacts that borrow historical and aesthetic references from art deco, hyperbolic language of abstract-expressionism, and Minhwa - Korean folk art described as “painting of the people”. She creates new archives of disinfrenchied subjects that push the boundaries of coloniality, animality, and animacy.
