Wolfgang Tillmans, Maureen Paley

Maureen Paley puts on the ninth solo show by Wolfgang Tillmans at her gallery in Bethnal Green. The exhibition features new and previously unseen works from the mid 1980s to the present day.

One of the most recent works on show is the multi-part work Old Street (parallax), 2019. It consists of photos taken whilst circling the Old Street roundabout. Tillmans presents this work side by side with new Greifbar works, created in the darkroom through the manipulation of light on paper. On the first floor gallery, Tillmans shows a grouping of photocopy works as well as inkjet prints of enlarged photocopies. The artist began using photocopies in the late 1980s and has since developed a uniquely inventive approach to the medium. Apparently there is also an audio work playing in the gallery’s yard but when I went for the opening is was so packed that I didn’t get a chance to experience it at all. I need to come back, this brilliant exhibition is really worth it!

Through 21 July
