Tal R

Tal R

Tal R is among the most significant contemporary artists. Since the 1990s, his versatile oeuvre has drawn enormous attention internationally. His works have appeared
in various solo and group exhibitions in Denmark, the USA, Germany, Israel and the UK.
His techniques include painting, collage, illustration, sculpture, object-making, and installation. He often uses elements from popular culture – music, comic book aesthetics,
TV and old video game graphics – collaging them into an extraordinary and complex imagery. In doing so, he recycles traditional techniques and visual forms,
transforms various styles and contexts, and integrates them into his work.

About the book:

This Artist Book is an exact copy of a notebook Tal has been working on for the last three years. The Egyptian Boy is dealing with the body broken down into bits
and pieces; nose, feet, knees, hips, genitals, throat, arm and so forth. The body being one for a second and then broken for a thousand seconds.

The Egyptian Boy book is also the source for a group of ceramic sculptures that Tal has been working on for the last three years. The sculptures were shown for
the first time in March 2013 at Contemporary Fine Arts Berlin.
