Geert Goiris

Belgium (1971)
Espace Images Vevey

Slow Dissolve

Whether landscape, architecture or portrait, Geert Goiris’ work is characterized by the recurring intention to move the signifier “from the realm of the real to the kingdom of ideas.” His photographs thus create a mysterious environment, encouraging viewers to focus on the incongruity of things when removed from their context. For his exhibition at Espace Images, he presented screenings of both his Whiteout and Prophet series as well as images from Resonance and Continental Drift. These images were collated for their narrative potential and ability to generate various interpretations.

Whiteout

The laureate of the Grand Prix Images Vevey 2007/2008, Geert Goiris traveled to the southernmost continent to follow his nation’s set up of the first zero emission research station, the Princess Elisabeth Antarctica. His Whiteout project reveals the fantastic potential of the South Pole landscape when offered to everyone’s imagination. Displayed outdoors in a structure made of maritime transport containers – pointing to the many containers abandoned on-site by polar missions – the project was presented via a large format slideshow.
