Liane Lang | House Guests

About

WW Gallery is pleased to present House Guests, a new installation by Liane Lang, 6th — 22nd October 2011. This new work takes its cue from the preserved or recreated living or working spaces of famous figures, designed to allow the viewer to enter temporarily into the past - a museum to the individual life. The projected film is an animation made in Rudyard Kipling's Vermont house, the site of many traumatic events for his family but also where he wrote many of his best-loved books. The haunting atmosphere of the film gently spills over into the exhibition space, where strange objects, piles of books, pieces of furniture and photographs extend the narrative. Liane Lang grew up in Germany and the US. She studied at NCAD in Dublin and completed a BA in Fine Art at Goldsmiths College followed by a Postgraduate Diploma at the Royal Academy, where she graduated in 2006. Her work is concerned with notions of animacy, which she investigates through sculpture, photography and video works. Many of Lang's works examine museum objects and the biographies they attempt to narrate, modes of display and the verisimilitude of art objects, particularly figurative sculptures and political monuments.
