An ‘outtake’ from ‘Five’
Christopher Young was born in small-town New Zealand in the mid-seventies. After finishing his studies he moved to Germany in 1996 before settling in Western Australia in 2002.
Isolation is a recurring theme in his life and artwork – the remoteness of growing up in semi-rural New Zealand, the loneliness of living in Germany as a poor German speaker and lately the geographic and ideological seclusion of life in Australia, have all coloured his artistic practice.
Context, coding in images and a lack of a personal cultural library have been central themes explored in his work.
He majored in Photography and exhibits on a regular basis in Western Australia.
