17.09. – 08.10.21

In conjunction with Leica Camera Austria, Desidero Gallery is honored to invite you to 

MYLAR by Bil Brown. 

The first simultaneous gallery opening and show with Desidero One and Leica Gallery Vienna Opera.

Psychedelic deformations and metamorphoses, Brown reveals the hidden desires of the projected identities. With unidentifiable gender, and deep animus, emotions are transformed into elongated mutations of colorful, gentle beasts and the soft fantasy of dissociated realties. Bil Brown’s MYLAR is both science and magic.

Inspired by photographer and poet Ira Cohen’s “The Mylar Chamber” from the sixties, Bil Brown revives the psychedelic portraits of Cohen’s experiment and brings the surreal process into the digital era. Artist collagist Penny Slinger says the MYLAR experiments bring the viewer, “into a place of stark mystery where spirits vie for attention and bubble to the surface to reveal themselves.”

Bil’s MYLAR has been featured in FLAUNT Magazine (US), Leica Fotografie International (GR), Leica S Magazine, and Purple Fashion Magazine (FR).

For the first time MYLAR is presented for us as a dual gallery simultaneously in Vienna – Desidero Gallery and Leica Gallery Vienna Opera.

MYLAR by Bil Brown offers at both locations and online as a limited edition print and digital NFT with the box set of the complete gallery series starting 17.09.21.
