ATA Window Gallery: Kit Young, Believing is Seeing

February 1, 2024 - February 28, 2015, 9649

ATA Window Gallery presents the opening reception for Kit Young, Believing is Seeing, February 6th, 7-9pm.

I am is an interdisciplinary multimedia artist working in the combined genres of video,

sound, kinetic sculpture, and performance. I also sketch, draw and journal to keep my

eye­ to­ hand connection fresh, to catalogue ideas and images, and to keep some roots in

traditional methods of production.

In my practice of art, I hold several lines of inquiry in mind:

Can the elements of a work of art be as diverse as possible while still allowing the piece

to function as a whole?

How do the mechanisms of our perception determine our reality?

What is the relationship between art and reality, given the crucial role of perceptual

mechanisms in producing what we take to be reality?

How do our systems of belief and our media­ saturated environment distort and

transform what we perceive?

What is the relationship between art and democracy, historically and currently?

Why is the art world still so lacking in diversity and integration?

What place can ethics and mindfulness have in the practice of art?

My art is improvisational and explorative. I enjoy using compositional systems of loose

structures that can respond to chance and chaos. I also appreciate the way that humor

and play loosen our rigid reactions and assumptions, allowing us to re­experience reality

in unexpected and liberating ways.
