Galerie Lisa Kandlhofer presents „sweet attraction & dissatisfaction“ a solo exhibition by Nana Mandl in the gallery’s project room.
In her colourful material collages, pictures, prints, and sculptures Nana Mandl develops possible visual implementations of contemporary media challenges and overloads. Her haptic collages combine elements of painting, embroidery and drawing with forms of communicatively-representative spheres of advertising, fashion, pop culture and social media. Playfully exposing the superficiality that often dominates meaning, her multi-layered work also represents the globalized patchwork society we live in today.
Nana Mandl (b. 1991, Graz, AT) studied at Kunsthochschule Berlin Weissensee and received her diploma in fine arts at the University of Applied Arts, Vienna.
Recent solo exhibitions include KS Room, Feldbach, Austria (2017); Künstlerhaus Halle für Kunst & Medien, Graz, Austria 2016.
Her work was included in following institutions: Künstlerhaus, Vienna, 2016; Kunsthalle am Hamburger Platz, Berlin, 2015; Kunsthalle, Museumsquartier, Vienna, 2015.
Mandl is a recipient of the Bildrecht Solo Award for the best solo booth presentation at viennacontemporary (2018); Startstipendium, Bundeskanzleramt für Kunst und Kultur Österreich (2017) and the Förderungsstipendium der Universität für angewandte Kunst, Wien (2014).all images © the gallery and the artist(s)
