This exhibition will focus on works produced over the last ten years, providing an intimate view of her expanding repertoire of historical and cultural figures, from Voltaire and Edwardian ladies to Emergency Service Worker and MC Hammer. Figure Sculpture will bring together 60 figures and busts from public and private collections, the artworks brought together for the very first time.

Presenting them among structures of iron, wood, glass and fabric, the pieces took on new meanings, wrapped in personal memories and the affective and artistic relation between father and son. Lang has been invited to make a site responsive project for the galleries at MUMA.
