Biography:

Yubin Kang is a research-based artist working in photography and ethnography. Her projects focus on place, agriculture, and food and consumption infrastructures. LocalFoodBiggerTable, a major project she began in 2015, focuses on markets and farms in and around Shanxi, China, where she was raised, and in East Sussex, where she accessed her sites by bus and foot during her university years. 

Yubin’s current project, started from 2017, Flowing Boundaries is a research-based, documentary photography project tracking global trade by documenting the journey of alfalfa from sites in Southern California across the Pacific, to China. The idea of using material form and images to explore research based topic would help visualizing data and facts. Currently pursuing an MFA in Visual Arts from the University of California, San Diego, she holds a BA from the University of Sussex and an MA in Cultural and Creative Industries from King’s College London.
