until 12.06. | #3479ARTatBerlin | aquabitArt Galerie and the Curve present from 03. June 2022 (Opening: 02.06.) the exhibition RE-FRAMED / RE-PHOTOGRAPHED with works by the artist 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 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.
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.
Opening: Thursday, 2. June, 5:00 to 7:00 pm
Exhibition dates: Friday, 3. June – Sunday, 12. June 2022. Daily noon – 6 pmTo the Gallery
