At this moment, he works as a musician (Nomad), as a video-artist and as a performer (together with Wannes Goetschalckx).
video and photo installation
“Land ahead “is the first soloshow in the gallery showing video and photographic works from the 'gaze' series, 'ansicht' series and others.
The fact that Pieter Geenen studied photography may have inspired him to make videos in which the image manifests itself slowly.
In his work Pieter Geenen mostly uses video, audio and photography to question the landscape, and geo-political and geo-social realities in general.
Pieter Geenen explores the subtle, hidden and 'slow' characteristics of things, the vague boundaries of the visible and the audible (and how they relate to each other),
and investigates the thin line between the moving and the static image.
Listening and watching becomes intense, intimate, alienating, contemplative and almost tangible in the context of an undisturbed stillness.
Pieter Geenen (°1979) lives and works in Brussels, Belgium.
