This is Tim. In 2006, the Belgian artist Wim Delvoye turned him into a canvas and temporary frame for a large tattoo on his back. In 2008, a German collector bought the still unfinished artwork for €150,000. The work will be completed when Tim dies and the tattoo is handed over to its owner.
Tim has sat for us at Mona before. And now he’s back. He says he’s become addicted to the place. He’s got some stories to tell and he’d like to share them with you.
Book a ticket to one of Tim’s talks, operating on Saturdays and Sundays at 1pm. You can also see him sitting in on a plinth in the museum from 10am–4.30pm daily until Sunday 29 April 2018.
