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 which is then 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 addresses themes ranging from visual codes and conventions to identity, gender politics and sexuality.
