The South African-born artist Kendell Geers (*1968) describes himself as a »Terrorealist«. His art borrows from the radical and insistent formal languages of violence and pornography, yet has an intelligent referential system as a subtext; a system that is often based on language and word-images, integrates references to art and mass culture – and leaves nothing up to chance.
Recent solo shows include »Ornamentum et Krimen«, M77, Milan, (2020); »Love, By Any Means Necessary«, Stephen Friedman Gallery, London, (2020); »In Gozi We Trust«, Goodman Gallery, Johannesburg, (2019/2020); »The Second Coming (Do What Thou Wilt)«, Rua Red, Dublin (2019). He lives in Brussels.
