“This series is an ode to ancient Japanese Shinto shrines, in which a sacred object (usually a mirror or stone) was obstructed from view for so long that their identity was entirely forgotten, hence being merely referred to as 'The Object'. What is important about the sacred matter in each piece is the mystery that surrounds it. This mystery is the key to The Objects' appeal and the displayed 'nothingness' serves as aid for meditation and contemplation.” — Martina Lang

About the Artist

File 113074

Martina Lang (b. 1982) is a photographer who creates conceptual images with a surreal twist. Her staged photographs often use common items, like paper, to create sculptural environments that introduce new perspectives. The tone of her work tends to shift between the meditative and humorous. Martina’s obsession with nature, books, and the everyday act as constant sources of inspiration for her work. The artist grew up in rural Bavaria and studied photography in Stuttgart where she graduated with honors. She moved to London after being awarded a scholarship and received an MA in Communication Design at Central Saint Martins University. She was PAMM Curator’s Pick at Pulse Miami Beach in 2018. Martina currently lives and works in London, UK with her practice spanning across editorial, commercial and fine art projects.
