Lena Flohrschütz

b 1985 Munich. Lives and works in Leipzig, Germany.

ARTIST STATEMENT

My works are attempts to realize social psychological concerns and to sensitize the perception for contemporary propaganda-methods.
Epistemologically I am situated within the field of radical constructivism.

Besides multimedia-based space installations, the „billboards“ are an essential part of my work:
These are visual hybrids of advertising, protest banners and city debris. They are painterly approaches to generation-specific emotional land- and actual cityscapes.
The terms and slogans in mirror writing are propositions and trigger points for the viewer to begin a search for traces in their own youth as well is in the present day.
