Haunted Hotel

Lang's dolls occupy opulent environments in this series. Grand houses, castles and magnificent interiors form the back drop for these figures, standing in for a human presence. The history of such locations is drawn out by being almost occupied. Thoughts of who lived here, the people who lived and died in these rooms, the generations of human endeavour and ugly deeds soaking the soft furnishings in dark corners.
