    About The Work

    For The Worshipper Luc Tuymans collaborated with a master printer in Antwerp to create a screen print based on his 2004 painting of the same name, the source of which was a photograph Tuymans took in the Musée International du Carnaval et du Masque in the Binche, Belgium.

    Ulrich Loock, curator of the artist's exhibition at the Kunsthalle Bern,1992,and author of influential texts on recent European art, uses Tuyman's installation of exhibitions as a way of mapping key themes in his Survey. Juan Vicente Aliaga, critic for Frieze and Artforum, reveals sources and motivations through his Interview with the artist. In the Focus, Nancy Spector, whose writings have been published in Artforum and Parkett, explores the narrative possibilities of the painting Pillows (1994). Tuymans selects Chevengur (1928) for Artist's Choice, a primitivist, magical tale by Russian author Andrei Platanov, and gives a fascinating account of his work in the essay 'Disenchantment' (1991). Bern-based critic Hans Rudolf Reust surveys Tuymans' works from 1996 to the present, including the artist's important cycle of works Mwana Kitoko, a critical look at Belgium's colonial past.
