Yasmin Jaidin is a Bruneian contemporary artist currently practicing in Brunei. Her practice revolves around materiality by working with media that can be found in the everyday like sugar, flour, grass and soil. She experiments with its physical state and is concerned with its ecology when it is displaced from one environment to another. She holds degrees at Goldsmiths and the University of Arts London, and has exhibited internationally at such venues as The National Art Center in Tokyo, UP Vargas Museum in Manila, the Manila Metropolitan Museum, and the Kaohsiung Museum of Fine Arts. Her work exhibits a fidelity to the chosen material, combining minimalism and process into an object oriented practice.
