Honggoo Kang Biography

Hong-gu Kang studied painting at Hongik University though he works primarily with photography. Kang takes digital images of landscapes and distorts them to reflect the changes in Korean society. His most recent works utilise photos of his former hometown in the midst of modernization and reconstruction. The works documenting his old neighbourhood and its destruction portray the stark reality of post-industrial Seoul. Kang was born in 1956 and currently lives and works in Seoul, Korea. He received his M.F.A. and B.A. from Hongik University. His work spans various media from photography, video, painting and site-specific installation work.
