YOU’RE SO COOL

be my tool
draw on times
of connecting
thru analogue collecting
new input missing
childhood reminiscing
hunting treasures
for our own pleasures
motives to trade
not one profile displayed
yet price being paid
early learning
growth confirming
feeling the chain
like to complain
about no interaction
leftover distraction
from trying use
my emotional
values

Mandl creates expansive, colourful and material-intensive collages, composed of analog and digital image archives that she combines into precise and multi-layered images in which private memories meet the collective memory of a generation. In her practice, Mandl uses sticker motifs and decals, Disney characters and Bravo covers, handwriting and photos in conjunction with photoshop layouts and renderings, pixelated surfaces and visual information remains from digital image production, storage and reproduction. The canvas is repeatedly emphasized in terms of its materiality, different textiles meet and are processed in different ways and used embroidery as if a gestural brushstroke. In the work, sewn and embroidered items are an anchor point and antipole to the accelerated image production and circulation that characterizes digital technologies.

Nana Mandl (b. 1991 in Graz, Austria) studied at the Kunsthochschule Berlin Weissensee and received her diploma in fine arts at the University of Applied Arts, Vienna.
