One of the basic themes in Florian Lang's works is the confrontation with chaos and overdose. In this triptych he mixes these basic themes with our society's desire for abundance. The altar mentioned in the title is depicted here as a classical triptych as in a church altarpiece. Naked bodies cut out of print media and apparently chaotically applied symbolize the desire and greed for more sex. The material addictions are depicted with gold-coloured elements. The blue elements stand for the holiday paradises advertised by the marketing industry. The collages were designed with excerpts from mostly glossy travel magazines.

FLORIAN LANG

SAM_2621_65.jpg
Florian Lang has studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna, the Glasgow School of Art and Marmara University in Istanbul. Diploma 2010.
The artist lives and works in Vienna.

About the work
The main focus of Florian Lang lies in the collage. Motifs from the world of consumerism are reproduced with scissors or a knife and get a new function in his pictures. The artist deals with the depiction of people, his staging and his urge to stage himself and his appearance in masses. In his collages, space is broken up and a play with dimensions begins.

Artistic activity
Apart from exhibitions at home and abroad, Florian Lang's framework as a freelance artist extends far. He produced several Music videos. He was the sound park band of the month with his band Le Toy FM 4.
He toured all over Austria and half of Europe. Made several stage designs for various Austrian theatres. Developed together with Franzobel a comic and two photo series for the accessory label Eva Blut. Collaborations with historians and architects have made it possible to exhibit in public spaces.
Florian Lang spent residencies in Italy, Poland, Hungary, Germany and Austria.
He has twice won the Förderpreis für bildende Kunst in Burgenland and is represented with his collages in various collections.
