"TABLEAUS" 2006-2016

Tor Seidel has already illuminated the relationship between identity, space, and meaning in his Tableaus, a series that the artist has been working on since 2006. He pursues aesthetic concepts from past centuries in which meaningfulness was intended to be expressed by means of overlapping layers. For the viewers, however, this implies that they must follow the messages concealed behind the mysterious figural compositions. Persons are mostly seen from behind in the Tableaus as well; they turn away so that they might be able to preserve their secrets for themselves and don masks or capes in order to protect their inner being, their own self.
