In her colourful material collages, pictures, prints and sculptures, Nana Mandl develops possible visual implementations of today's media challenges, and excessive demands. Her haptic collages combine elements of painting, embroidery and drawing with forms of communicative-representative spheres of advertising, fashion, pop culture, and social media.
The publication also takes a playful approach to superficiality and materiality, which often dominates meaning these days. Her multi-layered works find space in an catalogue, which makes precisely this overlapping of image worlds clear on 52 varied pages.
The individual prints in the publication show details of works, as well as exhibition views from recent years and are printed on differently structured paper. In addition, the sheets of paper are cut in different ways, creating an exciting, multi-layered space that arouses curiosity about the pages that lie ahead.
An additional 12 sheets of tracing paper offer space for six selected poems by the artist. The catalogue is not only intended to reflect a visual world, but above all to provide an incentive to discover new aspects and connections in an environment flooded with images.
