Tal R b. 1967 in Israel, lives and works in Copenhagen, Denmark. For Tal R the imagery of contemporary culture and society is like fuel: "My art always finds its point of departure in contemporary life … I'd say that most of my works are about things I've picked up in all imaginable places other than in the world of art." This recycled material – from an apparently vast archive – is processed, sampled and embedded in a unique universe characterized by playfulness, clear colors and forms, and an almost childlike impulsivity and energy. Tal R’s ‘universe’ consists of numerous series, which work by work construct new worlds where art becomes the impulse that enables people to sense the world anew.
