This collage is structured as a composition on four levels. The windows are cut into the canvas and behind them a three-dimensional body is glued onto the canvas from behind, depicted as a window.
In this work, the artist thematizes the courage that each individual needs to master his or her life and to "be on their own" in some critical situations of life. The swimming pool with the surrounding meadow stands symbolically for the individually designed life. One can guess the courage the woman needs to look into the pool shortly before jumping off. The house facades with the deserted windows looking onto the scene illustrate the scene shortly before the courageous jump into the pool, without another person watching.

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.
