Solo Exhibition


K Young

Presented by the Curve in collaboration with aquabitArt gallery.
Curated by Roxane Latrèche & Valerie von Meiss.

It is the visual codes and conventions within the frame that interest me most.“
— K Young

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 rephotographed 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.

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.

RE-FRAMED / RE-PHOTOGRAPHED, presented by the Curve Berlin is K Young’s very first international solo exhibition. The show is curated by Roxane Latrèche & Valerie von Meiss.
