Narcisse Tordoir (born in Mechelen, Belgium) practices painting as an act; a performance that continues to resonate. His language is associative, intrusive and mysterious yet with great formal precision. The elements, recognizable in themselves, are combined in a way which creates tension and opens up a semantic field of emotion, disrupting our ordinary ways of seeing and consistently off-footing the viewer. Narcisse Tordoir has represented Belgium at the Venice Biennale. In 1999 together with Luc Tuymans he organized Trouble Spot Painting, a trailblazing show marking the state of painting at the time. Tordoir lives and works in Antwerp, Belgium.
