Youngmin KANG's Solo Exhibition_curated by Lee Ji Min
Youngmin KANG

Full Size

Youngmin KANG is not limited to painting, which he majored in college, but freely engages sculpture, a variety of interactive media, and installation. An artistic genre should be a range of possibilities and not a set of regulations or restrictions. His resistance against confinement to one position and Kang Youngmin’s engagement with a variety of visual material is also another strong potential of this artist. This flexibility is also apt to his approach of “pressing towards the fundamentals of the truth in this world by deconstructive analysis.
