Click here to learn a bit more about myself.

My name is Désirée Jung and my intention here is to immerse into words. Writing my biography is a bit like witnessing the spectrum of my own gaze – an impossible task, due to its volatile and vulnerable contingency. For that reason, I let the poems speak for myself, signing my desire: for place and belonging. I can add that I’m a Brazilian-Canadian artist, lover of beauty and everything (but not-all) that comes from a feminine space. I want to thank you for your visit and the time dedicated to the words. I hope our encounter holds the possibility to unleash silences. If that occurs, take the letter with you, and never let go of it again.

Désirée Jung acknowledges she lives and writes on the unceded traditional territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam Indian Band), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish Nation), and səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh Nation).
