Kendell Geers

Kendell Geers makes art ‘where language and value systems become physical.’ From his beginnings as an artist-activist in South Africa he has worked to question and disrupt accepted moral codes, using the high-impact devices of violence, sexuality and fear, and he is alert to the ambiguities of language. Known for such gestures as pissing in Duchamp’s urinal and changing his date of birth to May 1968 (a nod to the French Situationists, and also the date of Marcel Duchamp’s death), Geers uses the context of art history for a much wider mission.
