Lucie Mauger

My work stems from recurring formal concerns and the desire to create a socially relevant narrative that offers a critical view on the positioning of society, culture and the mass media. In a wider context this body of work concerns the issue of greed but specifically focuses on the inherent properties of the mass media that evoke feelings of desire and obsession. By the re-appropriation of images taken from the mass media and materials taken from consumer culture my work aims to reveal the apparent crisis of values where the predominant influence is materialism and consumerism.
