Developed in relationship to his durational photographs, the pieces in Owen Kydd’s new exhibition test the boundaries of the video / photograph dichotomy he is known to supervise.
Pulling classical cues from composition, painting, collage, and studio practice, the works reflect an expanding medium, one that Kydd has cultivated and championed for the past decade.
Owen Kydd (b. 1975, Canada) lives and works in Los Angeles and Vancouver. He holds a joint degree in Fine Art and Literature from Simon Fraser University and a Masters in Visual Arts from UCLA. Works by Kydd have recently been exhibited at the Daegu Photo Biennale (Korea) and the Surrey Art Gallery.
