Dennis Tyfus : Up- And Downgrades pt. 2.5


Pinkie Bowtie is proud to present Up- And Downgrades pt. 2.5, its second exhibition of colour pencil drawings by Dennis Tyfus following an interim show in Bologna last year.


An ongoing series of self-portraits (exorcisms, perhaps), these drawings depict the artist in situations he can only dream of – or so it seems. The dominant themes of pt. 1 — displacement and animal nightmares — recur here (Dennis-as-doner, thinly sliced; crouching in the street, getting pissed on by rain and a small dog) but there is a pervasive feeling of loneliness and self-pity that takes centre-stage in this instalment: bald spot, belly, bodily fluids; everything is exaggerated.
This exhibition takes place concurrently to My Niece’s Pierced Knees, Tyfus’ first solo museum show at Middelheim Museum.
