Christian Stangl Vienna photographers

Christian Stangl's exhibition 'Habitat' was shown in February in the Vienese gallery Kabelwerk. The exhibition unites two of his photographic topics, which are completely contrary at first sight: architecture and mushrooms! "One is created by humans and enormous, the other is organic and tiny. Both are habitats. In the buildings we live, inside the mushrooms live small creatures, like spiders, snails and insects. You can barely see the inhabitants, but you can see their tracks."

The ARTspace KA12 in the Palais Kabelwerk was used to confront and connect both sides. "Strange, sinister and fantastic, our world as an unknown place, light-years away."

Christian Stangl photographs nightmarish scenes in cities, roads, caves and forests. He is constantly looking for the strange dark side of motifs, organically as well as anorganically.
