'From Disneyland to Detroit, Spokane to Scotland, Hairdos of Defiance highlights Templeton’s encounters with iconic punk-rock plumage across two decades and two continents. Shot on film, the portraits in Hairdos of Defiance track this ubiquitous expression of individuality on friends and strangers.

In the accompanying essay On Mohawks, Templeton reflects on the evolution of the mohawk, from its origins in indigenous culture to its emergence as a punk identifier, to its co-option by the mainstream, to its significance in his own life as an outsider kid growing up in suburbia.

This hardcover book features 62 photographs, printed in an edition of 1,500. Hairdos of Defianceserves as the catalogue for Templeton’s eponymous solo exhibition at Roberts Projects, Los Angeles, on view March 17 - April 21, 2018.' - Deadbeat Club.

SOLO SHOWSAWARDS 

Runo Lagomarsino awarded the 2019 Friends of Moderna Museet Sculpture Prize 2019

Runo Lagomarsino awarded the 2019 Friends of Moderna Museet Sculpture Prize 2019. In occasion of the award, Lagomarsino will have a solo exhibition at Moderna Museet running from November 12 - December 22, 2019. ⁠

“Runo Lagomarsino is an artist whose works offer a multifaceted picture of what working with sculpture can include. With careful attention to the material, but without ever ignoring its conceptual aspect, Lagomarsino shapes his narrative, acutely aware of the significance of political positionings. He oscillates between temporalities and identities and perceives art as a unit of time and space in a historic context. A sentence written on a baggage carousel, sand poured out in front of a Greek sculpture at a museum, material confronted with a colonial past. In his practice, Lagomarsino incorporates power and geography, mythology and national identity, objects and memories, invisible situations and opportunities for diverse dialogue.” - The Jury ⁠
 
 

GROUP SHOWS 

SUPERFLEX will be participating in the group exhibition 'Living in the Present Future' at Bornholms Kunstmuseum

SUPERFLEX will be participating in the group exhibition 'Living in the Present Future' at Bornholms Kunstmuseum. 

Created in collaboration with the National Museum in Stettin, Poland, the exhibition will feature a wide range of both Polish and Danish contemporary art.⁠
 
The exhibition focuses on what it means to be human in both the present and future. We live in a time when the influence of human civilization on the Earth is so significant that it has been identified as geological epoch called the Anthropocene, meaning ‘the time of man’. Now, we may be transitioning away from this ‘time of man’ and into a new epoch, wherein the boundaries between the environment, humans, and technology are increasingly challenged, and their relationships rapidly hybridising.⁠
 
SUPERFLEX will be participating in the exhibition with their work We Are All In The Same Boat. Presenting the familiar phrase as an LED light sign reminiscient of a commercial billboard, the work invites the viewer to reflect upon our present role in a world of escalating climate change and an apocalyptic human future while imagining a future world of lively, diverse and perhaps even humanlike lifeforms.⁠
 
The exhibition will run from 06.10.2019 - 05.01.2020
