ARTIST THORSTON BRINKMANN IN THE EXHIBITION "FACELESS", 3RD OF JULY AT 19H, OPENING AT MQ, VIENNA
PRESENTING CONTEMPORARY WORKS FROM THE WORLDS OF ART AND FASHION IN WHICH FACES ARE HIDDEN, TRANSFORMED, OR MASKED.
German artist Thorsten Brinkmann is always faceless in his self-portraits. For his photographs, which in color, pose, and composition are reminiscent of classic portrait painting, he puts together used everyday objects, discarded furniture, and household detritus as objets trouvés. In addition to some one hundred works by artists including Marina Abramović, Thorsten Brinkmann, Asger Carlsen, Shahram Entekhabi, David Haines, Ren Hang, Ute Klein, Nienke Klunder, Manu Luksch, Slava Mogutin, Mustafa Sabbagh, Jan Stradtmann, and Levi van Veluw, the show features masks by designers like Maison Martin Margiela, Jun Takahashi for UNDERCOVER, and Katsuya Kamo for Junya Watanabe’s COMME des GARÇONS.
