Fabulous & Impossible: The Cult of Leigh Bowery

Image: ‘Fabulous and Impossible’ - A Portrait of Leigh Bowery. Based on photography by Fergus Greer 2020

The Bowery gallery presents ‘Fabulous & Impossible - The Cult of Leigh Bowery’, an exhibition featuring the visual art of Sydney-based queer artist and multidisciplinary pistol-whip Tom Christophersen.

Featuring a collection of new and pre-existing works, Christophersen’s beautifully camp and subtly strange portraiture and video work celebrates the impact of queer visionaries, especially Bowery, on his contemporary arts practice.

Parallels of persona and character, performance art and the ultimate subversion of popular culture through a queer lens echo through this glamorous and twisted body of mixed media works on paper, incorporating both drawing and painting.

Fabulous & Impossible - The Cult of Leigh Bowery’ is for lovers of meticulously made things which glory in the uncomfortable and underground, the shock of the spectacle, and the delicious way the queer community creates art on their own terms from their own lived experiences.
