Artist & Work
b. 1968, Johannesburg
Kendell Geers creates work that aims to disrupt commonly accepted moral codes and principles. Employing a wide range of references—from the realms of art history to popular iconography and kitsch—he questions artistic value and mocks the notion of originality. Geers’s work has been shown in numerous international group exhibitions, including the 52nd Venice Biennale and Documenta 11, and major solo shows have been in Cape Town (1993), Johannesburg (2012) and Munich (2013).
