• Kat Lang

God the Mechanical Mother is an exhibition of extraction and post-metaphysical effluvia. Kat Lang experiments with primordial and time-bound materiality, and offers a deconstructed ontotheological study into the implications of meaning and uncertainty.

Lang’s work is an immersive installation that melds the human and non-human. Data retrieved from the body goes through a series of processes resulting in a recontextualisation of personhood. Through investigating how the body, in its most extreme states, develops and devolves via these processes, Lang creates an experience in which participants must rethink their own.

The weaving of auditory, visual and olfactory elements into a sensorial realm positions the body as something to be experienced outside the limitations of interpretation. Inspired by the abrasive textures of death industrial and power electronics, Lang memetically reproduces the corporeal through the digital, altering the anatomy of the gallery and making precise use of specialist equipment to record, expand and expose their internal body.
