Lars Laumann

Artist

Lars Laumann (b.1975 in Brønnøysund, Norway) is an artist based in Berlin and Oslo. He draws his inspiration from the outskirts of popular culture in the form of found texts, images and objects. By sampling and re-editing, he creates collages, books or videos. Mixing different media and techniques to create idiosyncratic worlds, the results are, at times, absurd and unsettling revelations of our collective modern mythologies. Recently his work has been shown at White Columns, Foxy Productions and MoMA in New York, USA; 5th Berlin Biennial in Berlin, Germany and in the summer of 2009 he will present new works at Trænafestivalen on the Island of Træna in North of Norway.
