In his latest exhibition, the Turner Prize-winning German photographic artist captures a series of images of a single subject. It's an unsettlingly personal journey that you're invited on and a new step for the artist.

Wolfgang has a friend. Karl. Karl is the subject of every one of the thirty or so photos on display in this show. Sometimes it’s Karl’s ear. Sometimes it’s his ankle. There’s an armpit and a bellybutton. Some photos show all of Karl, enjoying a beer or just hanging out. Karl takes a lot of trains. Turner Prize-winning German photographer Wolfgang Tillmans is an undoubtedly talented and accomplished artist. He has used this collection of images to develop ultra-high quality inkjet printing, so each image is reproduced to a breathtakingly high standard. Individual hairs, pores and even capillaries are pin sharp. Unfortunately the content is so tedious that one can’t help but wonder if it was worth it.
