G. Küng is from New York City and graduated from The Cooper Union in 2004. Her latest work incorporates the cyanotype process into a practice that includes collaged drawings and site-specific installations. She has exhibited her work in the U.S. and the U.K., with upcoming shows in Glasgow and Basel.
Is this a ‘picture’ or an accumulation of actions? A photogram on fabric is an amalgamation of image, process and material: it can plainly reveal how it was made while at the same time moonlighting as painterly abstraction.
I want my work to operate between being matter-of-fact and mysterious; for instance, how can you make something site-specific yet abstract? I like to make specific decisions that respond to a situation or location but remain oblique in terms of content: metaphor trumps likeness. My practice squares with a wider ethics that advocates experimentation and flexibility, inviting diversion from outside.
