Philipp Timischl‘s Good From Afar / Far From Good solo exhibition is on at Los Angeles’ Martos LA, opening September 11 and running to October 17.
The Austria-born artist’s show takes it’s name from RuPaul’s Drag Race and explores normalised masculinity and heterogeneity as represented on screen, via multimedia sculptures spanning painting, photography and video. With titles like ‘Just do it normal (masc)’, the exhibition intends to interrogate representations of queerness and contemporary gay culture in mainstream media, particularly its “reliance on heteronormative terminology and traditions, even as expanded concepts of gender and sexuality are being explored in mainstream media”.
