Narcisse Tordoir


For the solo exhibition ‘PEOPLE’ at TICK TACK, Narcisse Tordoir (Mechelen, 1954) will present a new body of work consisting of both in-situ and stand-alone pieces.

In addition, a large-scale public artwork, in collaboration with Yvon Tordoir, will be unveiled in the heart of Antwerp as part of this presentation.

Narcisse Tordoir (Mechelen, 1954) is a visual artist who lives and works in Antwerp, Belgium. He works with various media, ranging from drawings, prints and paintings to photography and installations. Through this, seemingly effortless, versatility, Tordoir digs into historical references to painting, while at the same time placing himself outside of the medium. With an explicit focus on the act of perception, his well thought-out and complex image montages challenge the intersections between romanticism and reality, between history and current affairs.

Tordoir’s practice spans over four decades with exhibitions at Paleis voor Schone Kunsten, Brussels; Venice Biennial, Belgian Pavilion; Kröller-Müller Museum, Otterlo; Centraal Museum, Utrecht; MHKA, Antwerp; Koninklijke Musea voor Schone Kunsten, Brussels; Museum Plantin Moretus, Antwerp; CC Strombeek; SMAK, Ghent; Roger Raveel Museum and Emergent, Veurne.

Tordoir’s works are included in museum collections such as MHKA, Antwerp; Mu. ZEE, Ostend; SMAK, Ghent; Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; Kröller-Müller Museum, Otterlo and Centraal Museum, Utrecht.
