Home Grown Window Residency - DAS TÖR by Ryan Asbury
Stryx JQ Gallery
Private view Friday 9th February 4pm - 9pm
9am - 3pm Monday to Saturday

Our next Window Residency artist is the sensational Ryan Asbury with DAS TÖR. This depicts a portal from Plutopia, a realm on the intersection of phenomenological, digital and physical reality, void of heteronormative biases. ⁠

The window will be illuminated with pink light, acting as a tear in reality, emitting Plutopian values of hope and inclusion into the ‘real world’. Turning the building into a gateway for queer visibility within Birmingham.⁠
