Timothy Taylor is pleased to announce its second solo exhibition with Josephine Meckseper, which will open during London’s Frieze week.

For the last two decades Meckseper’s work has interrogated politics, capitalism and art history through paradoxical juxtapositions of images and objects, in order to create open narratives. Drawn from the visual and material cultures of protest and political activism, advertising, cinema and early twentieth century display architecture, Meckseper’s combinations are visually confrontational yet subtle, relying on a strategy of infiltration, rather than describing their explicit position. The resulting tension, produced by the relationship between the conceptual structure and the thoroughly executed finished object, creates a distinct visual language that Meckseper continues to expand upon in this exhibition.
