Laurie Kang works in sculpture, photography and site-responsive installation, exploring the body as an
ongoing process. She uses materials in ways that emphasize their inherent sensitivities and connections
to human and nonhuman matter, engaging ‘mis-use’: rupturing rules, processes and functions of mediums
and materials, stimulating relational, unknown affects and changes. Kang has exhibited at The New
Museum, SculptureCenter, Helena Anrather, Interstate Projects, Cue Art Foundation, New York; Catriona
Jeffries, Vancouver; Oakville Galleries, Oakville; The Power Plant, Franz Kaka, Cooper Cole, Gallery
TPW, Toronto; Remai Modern, Saskatoon; Raster Gallery, Warsaw; and Camera Austria, Graz. Artist
residencies include Rupert, Vilnius; Tag Team, Bergen; The Banff Centre, Alberta; Triangle Arts
Association and Interstate Projects, Brooklyn. In 2022, she was the inaugural resident of Horizon Art
Foundation, Los Angeles. She holds an MFA from the Milton Avery School of the Arts at Bard College.
