Sračok & Pöhlmann presented The Alterity and Identity of Trans Imaginess — a book launch and exhibition featuring paintings, photographs and objects by Brian and Dawn Chalkley, curated by Herzog Dellafiore, organised by Rupert Pöhlmann and Herman Sračok.

Brian Dawn Chalkley is a London based artist whose work is an ongoing discussion of gender, sexuality and identity. His work is based around two characters, Brian and his transvestite personality, Dawn.

The practice manifests itself through painting, photography, installation, performance and video work. The construction of narrative and story telling are central to the work.

Brian and Dawn concoct a panoply of mystery making and substitution provoking a rupture in our certainties by coupling and uncoupling the palpable. The stage is set for a spectacle where visible forms are merely signs of the invisible idea.
