K. Yoland is a multidisciplinary artist from London. Predominantly working with video, photography, text, installation and live performance, the body or its impact is ever-present. Working both site-specific and in gallery spaces, Yoland's previous projects have involved a wide range of participants across Europe and the United States. This has included filming a barber and soldier outside in the desert, choreographing dancers in a video installation in Copenhagen, directing Olympic fencers on scaffolding in London, making dream interviews with people on the streets of Harlem and taking employment in 21 different 'day-jobs' in Paris. Yoland's work up to date explores the nature of identity, power and borders in our society.
