Samin Son's performance works are marked by intimations of power, violence and control.

Born in Korea in 1988, Samin Son moved to New Zealand in 2001. In 2007 he interrupted his education at Massey University's School of Fine Arts to undertake compulsory military training in Korea. Since returning to New Zealand (and his studies) Samin has been making a name for himself for the intensity of his live performance works, which he has performed throughout the country, documented on video and shared with the world via YouTube.
