Julius Thissen’s works explore notions of community and representation, masculinity, sports and competition. With their photographic work, originating from their practice as a performance artist, the artist aims to create narratives that investigate the fine line between performing and failing. These relations are strongly linked to contemporary performance-driven culture, and the influence of social expectations on our behaviour. Their work also relates to personal experiences as a genderqueer person; Thissen strongly opposes the constraining and often binary narrative imposed on transgender and queer people.
