Dominik Lang

[artist profile]

Dominik Lang (Prague 1980) is a sculptor whose source of inspiration comes from his interest in the logic and manner of the artistic production and exhibition process. The field of his investigation, so universal but also so intimate, drives Lang to consider and therefore to use once again the sculptures of his late father artist Jirí Lang (1927–1996), with an approach to the sculpted figure is the relationship between the model and its representation, between sculpture and space, between the art-making process and the artist.

Among his most important solo exhibitions, “The Sleeping City” for the Czech and Slovak Pavilion at the 54th Venice Biennale in 2011, “Expanded Anxiety” at Secession Wien in 2013, “Waiting Room” at Prague National Gallery in 2014, and “Girl with a Pigeon” at Monash University Museum of Art Melbourne in 2015. He exhibited in many institutional spaces, including at Prague National Gallery, Palais de Tokyo Paris, INHOTIM Belo Horizonte, Wroclaw Contemporary Museum, Kunsthaus Dresden, Czech Centers Berlin and New York.
