WOLFGANG TILLMANS – Central Nervous System

Info

Maureen Paley
21 Herald Street
London, UK
14 October – 24 November, 2013

Words

While most of Wolfgang Tillmans' recent output, has centered around his Neue Welt body of work, his new show at Maureen Paley in London marks a return to more traditional portraiture photography. Focussing on a single subject for the entire show, Central Nervous System is Tillmans' seventh show at the gallery, and is "as much an intimate portrait of a nuanced relationship as it is a portrait of Tillmans himself."

Wolfgang Tillmans Neue Welt

—01. Interior pages.

Words

One of my favourite books to be released in 2012, Wolfgang Tillmans' Neue Welt from Taschen features new work shot over the past several years. The book features a broader look at the world from Tillmans – from London and Tierra del Fuego, to Tasmania, Saudi Arabia and Papua New Guinea – in comparison to the self-reflexisve nature of a lot of his earlier output. The artist himself describes his travels as "aimless as such, not looking for predetermined results, but hoping to find subject matter that in some way or other speaks about the time I'm in.”
