In Focus

Tal R discusses a new show of Danish painting at Victoria Miro Mayfair

On the opening of a new exhibition at Victoria Miro Mayfair celebrating three generations of internationally-acclaimed Danish artists – Asger Jorn (1914–1973), Per Kirkeby (1938–2018), and Tal R (born 1967) – Tal R discusses what unites them and how painting collapses time.

 

Did you know Per Kirkeby well?

I got to know him about twenty years ago. I liked him a lot. And through him, and also because I was teaching in Dusseldorf, I got to know Jörg Immendorff and Georg Baselitz. I took over AR Penck’s class, I know Markus Lüpertz well – he was mine and Peter Doig’s director, so I feel very much connected to the whole group. I think I was the only one at art school in the ’90s who was interested in these people, because they were out of fashion. But I felt I really learned something from all of them. And Per also brought part of that German attitude to Denmark. So, in many different ways I was influenced by all of this.

 

Some of the Kirkeby works in the Mayfair exhibition are surprising, almost like Pop Art?

It’s very Per Pop from the 1960s and ’70s. The only access you had to the American painters at that time was in magazines or in travelling exhibitions. Today everything is different, everything hits the fan at the same time… 

Painting has a different clock. Two hundred years is five minutes ago…
