Geert Goiris – Flashbulb Memories, Ash Grey Prophecies, Foam, Amsterdam, 20.03 – 24.05.15
Foam is proud to present the first solo exhibition by Belgian artist Geert Goiris (born Bornem, 1971) in the Netherlands. His unconventional visual language and unsettling tone are still little known within our country.
Geert Goiris occupies a unique position in the field of contemporary photography. He creates powerful images of sublime landscapes, modernist architecture and mysterious portraits of strange, unreal beauty where time and space seems to be suspended. The tension between fact and fiction generates stories, associations and suspense. And yet everything that Goiris photographs is real. The exhibition is excluded from daylight, and the oppressive atmosphere within the images is intensified by spatial interventions and interaction between framed photos of varying dimensions, wallpapers and slide shows.
