The artwork of Zofie Lang: Narrative assemblages which explore the psychology of folklore, literary tales and superstitions. Using digital photography, photo collage, and found object assemblage, these pieces re-construct stories by extracting their key elements, thereby aiming to present their essence.
ARTIST STATEMENT Humans continually seek to create meaning in an uncertain world, a world where events are often beyond their control and defy easy explanation. Modern science has shed light on a number of phenomena, but there remains a fascination with old explanations, those drawn from ancient folklore, holding underlying beliefs deeply ingrained in the human psyche. I explore this idea in my art, looking at folk tales and their often macabre ramifications.
