ABOUT THE ARTIST
K Young (they/them) is a lens-based artist living and working in London, UK. A graduate from Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, K Young works primarily with collage and a process which they term re-photography. Using appropriated photographic imagery found in second-hand books and magazines, the artist intervenes on the material, instinctively cutting, splicing and re-joining it, giving rise to a fortuitous collage. The resulting image is then re-photographed and printed, once or several times, as it returns to its original form as a photograph. Questioning notions of truth, interpretation, and the unconscious, K Young addresses themes ranging from visual codes and conventions to identity, gender politics and sexuality.
ABOUT THE CURVE
the Curve is a private art space and nomadic gallery dedicated to the exhibition and promotion of contemporary collage art. Young emerging as well as established artists are given a platform here. Founded in 2017 by Valerie von Meiss in the hallway of a private apartment in Berlin-Mitte, the Curve regularly takes over pop-up spaces and believes in collaborations beyond the traditional gallery landscape.
