Louisiana poster with the work, Keyhole (2016), by Tal R (b. 1967). Years ago, Tal R asked his friends to send him pictures of facades in their hometowns' Red Light Districts. He also took pictures himself. From these images, Tal R developed the group of artworks that make up Keyhole, a title he chose for its suggestion of voyeurism and concealment.

Since the 90s, Tal R has been one of the most significant Danish artists of his generation and is today richly represented in Louisiana's collection.

Throughout his work, Tal R has engaged in a multitude of materials and types of work: drawing, collage, print, books and sculpture. He clearly refers to the history of art, but he rather takes the motifs from the world of reality. Tal R's works act as portals that can invite us into other worlds.

Tal R lets a whole range of different elements flow into his images as a kind of focused play, fascinated by the murmurs. Writing, words, traces, shape, color and substance—everything comes together and becomes the sum from which the image arises.

Basically, it is the desire to create and look at images at all that is the backbone of Tal R's multifaceted work. This fascination is the basis of Tal R's work and it can hardly avoid spreading to the viewer.

Tal R made his Louisiana debut in 1997 and had something of a popular breakthrough with the museum's retrospective exhibition, The Sum, in 2007. Louisiana opened in 2017 the first collective presentation of the artist's work created over the past 20 years.
