More about Kendell Geers
b. 1968, Johannesburg, South Africa; lives and works in Brussels, Belgium
Monument (Fired Up), 2012. Bronze and gas fire, 300 x 50 cm
Having been a passionate opponent of apartheid in his home country of South Africa, Kendell Geers’s highly political, confrontational and often iconoclastic sculptures and installations examine power structures, social injustices, and establishment values.
Monument (Fired Up) can be read in symbolic terms as a discredited beacon, and a warning light for skewed notions of ‘progress’ in the continuing industrial age.
Art Salon is curated by Maike Cruse.
