Flora Lechner


Flora Lechner studied Industrial Design at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna and then obtained a master's degree in Contextual Design at Design Academy Eindhoven. She has worked on various art and design projects and participated in exhibitions in Rotterdam, Van Abbe Museum Eindhoven, Salone del Mobile in Milan and the Venice Architecture Biennale. Flora is particularly interested in the human and creative tendency to seek divine perfection. Her work follows an interdisciplinary approach, combining sculpture, design and performance, to observe the power relations between bodies, objects, and spaces. She examines the utility and handling that an object or material suggests, then tries to interrupt, repurpose or even overemphasise the suggestion, by confronting the object with its absurdities. In this way, she plays with guidelines and imagination, exploring different levels of reality and challenging the conventions of shifts in form and material, always maintaining a humorous perspective. Flora likes to think of her works as small stages or potential action spaces, playing with the idea of activation and ghostly stagnancy.
