The hybrid oeuvre of multimedia artist Philipp Timischl questions the traditional boundaries between disciplines. His installation The Embedded Mentality of Self-Sufficiency combines painting and video, pigments and pixels, to explore the collisions between identity and image-based culture. Two pictures, framed by a LED screen, interact with a visual collage of videos from various sources. A mixture of documentation and fiction, this critical and ironic piece invents a new narrative structure, fluid and shifting. With a queer sensibility that turns the usual value systems on their head, Timischl shows how the flow of historical, artistic and media images influences our interior dialogues, our perceptions of reality, and how we relate to the outside world.
