Kendell Geers

Kendell Geers was born in May, 1968, grew up in Johannesburg, South Africa and currently lives and works in Brussels, Belgium.

Being himself both African and European, and yet at the same time neither, Geers has always been drawn to the concept of the Inter-Zone, a borderland or hybrid state that speaks both of what it is as much as what it is not. The creative and destructive impulse are equally adopted as strategies that bring art and life uncomfortably closer to one another, each being made more complex through the confrontation and juxtaposition.

Professor of Research Program (2003)
