Overview

Solo exhibition ‘Voëlvry’ takes its name from the Afrikaans Anti-Apartheid music movement that Kendell Geers was part of in the late 1980s. Geers played keyboards and tape loops for the underground band KOOS that was featured on the original Voëlvry album, credited with launching a movement described as “Significant in every social, political, cultural and musical sense of the word”. With characteristically dark humour ‘Voëlvry’ challenges definitions of art in the 'post-truth' era, bringing together prints, neon sculptures and works on paper that invite the viewer to meditate on the question, what does freedom mean in 2021?
