DESCRIPTION

Geert Goiris’ (°1971) photographs often denote a fundamental tension between man and nature. His collection of architectural and utopian landscapes showing traces of human presence are haunted by an uncanny proximity. Goiris regularly takes the standpoint of the ‘outsider’, thereby creating a tangible distance between photographer and subject. His camera makes us aware of the paradoxical position of ‘close to and yet far away’. All sense of time and space is banished as he plays with form, abstraction, light and depth. Figures are more likely to appear in his recent work and open story lines are suggested.

M brings together a selection of existing photographs and new work never exhibited in Belgium. The selection will be combined with a new analogous slide projection.
