Young-Min Kang

Seoul, Korea
October 17, 2005 - January 17, 2006

Young-Min Kang earned an MFA in Studio Art from the University of Texas in Austin and a BFA in Painting from Seoul National University, Korea. A veteran of numerous solo and group shows, Kang has worked as a drawing instructor at the Seoul National University of Technology as well as the Seoul Women’s University. The artist blends sculpture and photography to create complex installations that transform both objects and images captured from digital media, architecture or cultural phenomena. Kang is interested in expanding the limits of a particular media through changing the format of the information. For example, in his digital prints, he emphasizes pixels by lowering the image resolution and transporting the processed images into an actual space either as installations or as 3D objects. Similarly, highway road maps can be reinterpreted and transformed as 3D human body structures or a tangled web of Asian noodles.
