GEOFFREY DE BEER — COSMOPOLITE FROM THE COUNTRYSIDE
25.05.2018 – 23.06.2018
Geoffrey de Beer’s work is generally conceptual and political. His quasi-scientific methodology of strictly dispassionate experimentation and reporting is firmly situated within an institutional context and heavily extended into an institutional critique.
This series of works is inspired by the colorful architecture of small French Alsatian villages, the "golden ratio" of traditional painting composition, the form and color theory of the Bauhaus, poetry and the quest for aesthetic excellence.
