American artist Aaron Young is recognized for his performance artworks for which he enlists culturally-resonant participants such as motorcycle riders or skateboarders. Photographs, videos, drawings, and sculptures are the traces of these ephemeral acts that constitute an opus of Young's intricate choreography. When Young refers to Jackson Pollock’s Action Paintings, he understands the destructive, yet dynamic energy to be relevant beyond the role of the body involved in a specific working process. Young expands the speed and the style inherent in gestural abstraction and reveals his interest for the multifarious figures and imagery of urban culture.
