WHERE : Boxcopy

OM NOM NOM NOM presents a new body of work by Alice Lang which was developed during a recent artist residency at RAID Projects in Los Angeles. This new series of paintings, drawings and objects incorporates images and text derived from tumblr posts, google search results, trolling and slang to form an installation in which everday experiences, memory, popular culture and current events become entwined and jumbled. This installation examines the tension between our virtual and physical selves which is generated through the interpassivity of social media, and explores the effect that this fragmentation has within a wider sociopolitical context.

Alice Lang is a visual artist currently based in Brisbane, Australia. Her cross-disciplinary art practice explores how objects achieve public and personal meaning through the emotions, latent memories or meanings imbued in their material. In 2004, Lang completed her Honours in Visual Arts at QUT in Brisbane and was awarded the Queensland Art Gallery Hobday and Hingston Bursary. She has been the recipient of awards such as the Qantas Spirit of Youth Awards (2006), Queensland Art Gallery Melville Haysom Scholarship (2009), Australia Council New Work Grant (2012) and the Lord Mayors Emerging Artist Fellowship (2012). Lang has completed residencies in Canada, New York and most recently at RAID Projects in Los Angeles. She is a founding co-director of LEVEL artist-run-initiative, and was recently accepted into the MFA program at CalArts in Los Angeles.
