  • Catalogue Essay

    What makes Geers’ work fundamentally important is the complexity of
    layers of meaning concealed behind its apparent simplicity. It is precisely
    this illusion of straightforwardness that gives the work its strength as
    it belies the multiple meanings and references from which each piece is
    constructed.These are sometimes critical and seldom without a certain
    occultism which is unlikely to be perceived by those who are unfamiliar
    with the hermetic tradition of spirituality.
    (Christine Mace, Kendell Geers,The Internal Experience From Breaking in
    to Breaking out, in Kendell Geers, IRRESPEKTIV, Barcelona, 2007, p. 199)
