Kendell Geers, AnimystikAktivist : between traditional and the contemporary in African art by Jens Hoffmann( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

South African-born Belgian artist Kendell Geers changed his date of birth to MAY 1968 as a performance, effectively giving birth to himself as a work of art. His artistic practice weaves together African animism, European mysticism, and socio-political activism with humor, irony, and contradiction. He uses his identity as a White African like a key to unlock and critique our understanding and reading of history, art, and language. This book, which focuses on his works created between 1988 and the present, looks at the influence of avant-garde traditions from Dada and Surrealism to Punk, intertwined with the powerful legacy of traditional African art on his work. Spiritually charged, politically poignant, and socially engaged, the work cannot be categorized as either European or African, but is rather a prolonged metaphysical dialogue between cultures, archetypal signs, and sacred symbols. Included are works in a diversity of media, including painting, sculpture, performance, photography, installation, and conceptual art

Kendell Geers, 1988-2012 by Kendell Geers( Book )

8 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book explores how the life and work of South African artist Kendell Geers can be seen to constitute a living archive of political turmoil, protest against injustice, and the effects of globalization. In his provocative, often humorous, but always compelling work, Kendell Geers employs various media such as installation, drawing, video, performance, and photography. For two decades his art has been closely linked to the political and cultural environments of his home--whether in South Africa or Europe. This volume explores in particular the trajectories of two decade-long periods. The first, a political phase, runs from 1988 to 2000, during which time Geers explored the moral and ethical contradictions of apartheid. By appropriating historical events and ideas, he focused on questions of the relationship between individual and society. The second period was initiated by Geers's move to Brussels in 2000. This European period is characterized by a poetic aesthetic as Geers transferred his artistic practice into a postcolonial and increasingly global context, exploring themes such as terrorism, spirituality, and mortality. This volume features a number of essays addressing aspects of Geers's work as well as an interview with the artist."--Publisher's website
Irrespektiv, Kendell Geers by Kendell Geers( Book )

6 editions published in 2007 in 4 languages and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Antología de instalaciones, fotografías, dibujos y performances en las que Geers emplea imágenes estandarizadas de la televisión y la publicidad con un marcado acento crítico respecto a la situación política y cultural de Sudáfrica y a la manipulación de la cultura a través de los medios de comunicación global, saboteando el lenguaje por medio de una estrategia que desdestabiliza la percepción final de los mensajes. "Soy un africano blanco que vive en una época en la que personas provistas de cuchillas de afeitar pueden estrellarse contra los edificios más poderosos del mundo. Una época en la que quince millones de sudafricanos tienen el sida. Una época en la que los Estados Unidos pueden declarar la guerra a Irak sin otra razón que la de satisfacer sus propios deseos. Una época en que la polución de los Estados Unidos provoca inundaciones en Europa y sequías en Australia. Vivo en una época de contradicciones en la que la contradicción, la verdad, el deseo, la pasión y la anarquía no son más que nombres de perfumes. Vivo en la edad de la reproducción digital, en la que no existe la verdad más allá de la imagen, en la que cada imagen puede ser modificada y cambiada, y cualquiera puede ser borrado o insertado en la Historia."

The plague is me by Kendell Geers( Book )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tiré du site Internet de Onestar Press: ""The Plague is Me" is a practice articulated within a theoretical frame, a coded text that uses language as a virus upon itself. At once both located within the present and a hidden past, the text is both a parody as well as a challenge to the construction of language and history. With an anarchic disrespect Kendell Geers places his tongue firmly in your cheek in a game of hide and seek, Burrowing into language like the worm computer virus to recreate the violence of past revolutions within the present, a reminder that the war game is never over and never one. Kendell Geers."
