Philipp Timischl


Austria. 1989.

Philipp Timischl creates expansive multimedia installations combining personal notes from everyday life with found and self-produced materials to build narrative structures. Balancing between documentation and fiction, between the private and public spheres, 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 institutional solo exhibitions include: Secession, Vienna (2018, Autria), Halle für Kunst, Lüneburg (2016, Germany), Künstlerhaus, Graz (2014, Austria), Emanuel Layr Gallery, Vienna and Rome (2019, Austria and Italy), Neue Alte Brücke, Frankfurt (2018, Germany), Vilma Gold, London (2017, England). His work has been included in group exhibitions at the Belvedere, Vienna (2018, Austria), Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Turin (2015, Italy), KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin (2016, Germany), Moderna Museet, Stockholm (2015, Sweden).
