Kendell Geers features in 'PLANET B, Climate Change and the New Sublime'
The first show from the new international curatorial cooperative Radicants, founded by Nicolas Bourriaud, explores how climate change influences today’s art – specifically through the lens of the sublime, as defined as “a delight tinged with terror” by the 18th-century philosopher Edmund Burke.
The presentation features 'Poetic Justice (Season in Hell) 8177' by Kendell Geers. Charged with an intense melancholia, this painting on canvas depicts cut flowers whose petals simultaneously take the form of bullet holes or wounds.
Artists include: Nils Alix-Tabeling, Dana-Fiona Armour, Charles Avery, Gianfranco Baruchello, Hicham Berrada, Bianca Bondi, Peter Buggenhout, Roberto Cabot, Alex Cerveny, Anna Conway, Sterling Crispin, Kendell Geers, Anna Bella Geiger, Loris Greaud, Agata Ingarden, Per Kirkeby, Agnieszka Kurant, Romana Londi, Turiya Magadlela, Thiago Rocha Pitta, Lucia Pizzani, Max Hooper Schneider, Ylva Snofrid, Nicolas Uriburu, Ambera Wellmann, Haegue Yang and Phillip Zach.
