K Young

Filing Cabinet

K Young’s methodology is based around social constructs and gender identity: examining spatial representation, form, and the notion of time and place. Using appropriated and found photographic imagery – taken from second-hand books and magazines – K Young makes physical interventions with a knife to alter and subvert visual codes and conventions. Unplanned, chance arrangements are juxtaposed and spliced together before being “re-photographed.” They are then presented back as a semblance of their original form, challenging viewers to determine what is “real” and what has been constructed, and ask: who owns images?
