artist nominated by Marlies Wirth


1989 · Graz, Austria

Philipp Timischl’s expansive multimedia installations combine found and self-produced materials to build narrative structures. Balancing between documentation and fiction, they play with intimacy and self-reference. Major themes in his art include the lasting influence of our roots, exclusion and queerness in relation to social classes as well as the power dynamics between art, artist and audience. Recent exhibitions include: Too blessed to be stressed, too broke to be bothered, Galerie Emanuel Layr, Rome (2019); Artworks For All Age Groups, Secession, Vienna (2018); My Masters, My Gods, Gallery Neue Alte Brücke, Frankfurt (2018).
