Philipp Timischl is an artist born in 1989 in Graz. Coming from the rural countryside of Austria he is now living and working in Paris, France. His practice spans various media such as video, sculpture, painting and photography, often combined with text and culminating in site-specific installations. A reoccuring theme in his work are power dynamics – often in relation to social classes, queerness, heritage and the art world.
Since studying in Frankfurt, Städelschule and graduating from the Academy of fine Arts in Vienna, he recently had solo exhibitions at Secession, Vienna; Halle für Kunst, Lüneburg; Emanuel Layr, Vienna; Vilma Gold, London; Neue Alte Brücke, Frankfurt; Künstlerhaus Graz. His work was shown in group exhibitions at Kunsthalle Bern; Kunstwerke Berlin; Luma Foundation, Zürich; Fondazione Sandretto re Rabaudengo, Turin; Kunsthalle Vienna and Serpentine Gallery, London.
