Narcisse Tordoir - Neonkunstwerk 'Zonder titel'
About the statue:
This neon artwork is free for interpretation. You should use your own intuition, orientate yourself. You are overwhelmed with mystery: you can understand the figures, but you cannot explain them. Reason and emotion are combined in a harmonious way.
Purchased in 2000.
About the Artist:
Painter, graphic artist (silk-screen printer), designer of installations. After his schooling at the Antwerp Academy, he started experimenting with performances and installations. He also painted for a while; his initially large canvasses were soon reduced to small panels with mysterious emblems.
He plays with signs, images, ideas, objects and symbols in a way that is neither abstract nor figurative. Narcisse Tordoir won the Cultural Prize of the Flemish Community for Visual Arts in 1997. He gets his inspiration from text fragments, the legacy of René Magritte, ideas, objects, erotic symbols.
