The artist Nana Mandl (born 1991 in Graz, lives in Berlin and Vienna) elaborates, in her bright material collages, possible visual realisations of present-day media challenges and overloads. The exhibtion "shuffle repeat" features works shown for the first time in Graz, sometimes very tactile collages unifying elements of painting with forms of communicative, representational advertising, fashion, and social media. The publication Fanzine #8 offers a closer look into her work. Her art works seem as if they haven’t found their final form yet, as if one could watch them as they take on their shapes, and at the same time one can see how strongly they rely upon this state of being circulated and reproduced.
