The London-based fashion photographer Juergen Teller is always blurring the lines between fashion, life and art—and two new exhibitions in Vienna and Paris are no different. It has become Teller’s trademark now to wear his infamous European Union hoodie, where one star is missing in reference to Brexit. In this solo show on at Christine König Galerie in Vienna until March 3, the artist features British actress Kristin Scott Thomas wearing his hoodie alongside shots of silver screen actresses Béatrice Dalle and Suzanne Seymour, as well as one shot of photographer William Eggeston.

Teller also has an exhibition on at the Suzanne Tarasieve Gallery in Paris, which is filled with frogs, nipples and more EU flag sportswear. The self-portrait photos show the artist hanging out with snails, who crawl on his legs eating peaches. It’s a bizarre mix but this is no surprise from this avant-garde storyteller.
