Description

Matthias Herrman is at it again – only this time he’s strutting his stuff over the Tuscan landscape. Liberated from the privacy of the hotel rooms that are the stage for many of his previous performances, these outdoor self-portraits are among most inventive to date. The costumes, wigs, signs, and other everyday objects that have been his props in the past combine with the bounty of the natural world. The artist – wearing characteristically little if anything – swings from trees, crouches in bushes, or poses in the middle of a field, confronting the viewer with his body, his sexuality and his stagings of identity.
