The oeuvre of Austrian artist Iris Andraschek is shaped by her interest in motifs taken from the worlds of everyday culture and social policies. The relationship between humanity and nature, alternative life designs and questions about a more just co-existence are recurring themes in her work. Communication is crucial for her research-based work. This is reflected in her projects, which focus on personal experiences.
For the artist’s first solo exhibition the Lentos pulls together works from the last 35 years. As a comprehensive selection, the show features drawings, photographs, and spatial installations, some of which are expressly made for the occasion.
Iris Andraschek was born in Lower Austria’s Horn in 1963 and studied at the Akademie der bildenden Künste Wien and at the Freskoschule in Bolzano. She has been awarded a number of prizes for her work, such as the Österreichischer Kunstpreis für bildende Kunst.
