Lana is a visual artist working with found and natural objects, cast metal and photography.

Lana is interested in the so-called 'feral' nature of human beings, against the constraints of contemporary society. Her work explores themes of mortality, procreation, abjection and transgression, seeking to make connections between human biology and natural and manmade structures; packaging and waste. Objects, appropriated like props for her sculptural forms and photographs, are abstracted and made strange through visibly fragile compositions, often referencing the internal and external human body.

Her sculpture has expanded towards installation-based work that carries the visual language of the objects and images into the architectural environment, involving and temporarily altering the space to become part of the surreal and abject world of the work. The space becomes a large living collage for her working processes, as much of a sculpture as the objects and images within it. This interest has extended to using objects and texts in installation interventions in outside spaces.

Lana is currently undertaking a practice-based PhD, provisionally titled "The agonistic struggle of the art object against the space in which it is installed". Agonism being a political theory that focuses on the value of conflict - rather than harmony - within democracy, and that seeks to channel that conflict positively. Read less
