In the mid-1970s an unusual housing project was built in Vienna. Zara Pfeifer captured its human side for the first time in an expansive series of photographs.

Marianne Lang

Feldspar, Quartz, and Mica

Worlds crash into one another when Marianne Lang (*1979) makes phenomena of civilization and observations of nature collide: leaves eaten by caterpillars with wood inlays, ivy reconstructing building substance, and thousands of woodlice forming a carpet pattern. The artist thinks the concept of “drawing” further—not only by means of unconventional techniques, but also by interlinking material and motif: curtains drawn with “yellowing” silverpoint; moths burned in with a soldering iron; climbing plants that reveal old masonry in a sgraffito style. Marianne Lang thwarts habits of seeing and thinking and polarizes in a subtle and intelligent way. The new publication provides a look at these refined artistic observations.
