Lena Schwingshandl (*1994) is an Austrian artist based in Vienna. She is interested in the dynamics of relationships and encounters both on a public and intimate level. Inspired by daily observation and self reflection, she is testing her own borders and the one of others. In her work she tries to document these experiences extensively in the form of photography, video and performances. In her recent works she includes her family members and performs with them in front of the camera, thereby exploring the authenticity of the video as well as the effect of her artistic practice on her personal relationships.
She finished her BA at the University of Arts and Design in Linz. 2017/18 she spent an Erasmus semester in Tallinn, Estonia. Currently she studies Fine Arts at the Academy of Arts in Vienna.
