Currently residing in Brussels, Belgium, the contemporary African artist Kendell Geers was born in Johannesburg, South Africa. He changed his birth date to May, 1968 in order to give birth to himself as a work of art and as being part of a global social revolution.
Geers work is and always has been, politically charged, engaging with issues like colonialism, apartheid and power structures. His first major show at the Iziko National Gallery in Cape Town was called Heart of Darkness in 1993. Generally, he seeks to unsettle and disrupt, questioning morality and accepted codes of behaviour through his often shocking but profound artworks.
