Geert Goiris at Quai1

For the exhibition « Slow Dissolve » presented at Espace Quai1, Geert Goiris presents the two series “Whitout” and “Prophet” as projections and five photographs from « Resonance » and « Continental Drift ». Geert Goiris’ photographs structure what he calls the “traumatic realism ”creating a mysterious environment that encourages us to take a closer look at an unfamiliar reality and the potential strangeness of things taken out of their context.
