SVART HVITT: In most cases Robbert Geend work is based on a personal situation or event that is difficult for him to digest. Because he cant place them in his inner life he decides to share them with a crowd. Matters get enlarged and intimate, personal and hidden cases get blazed abroad. By taking an emotional happening out of its private and intimate context, then to place it in public, he gets hold on the processing. He stays close to the anecdote to treasure its purity and authenticity. Yet, by using metaphors he tries to create a detached perspective in order to achieve an universal language.
Robbert Geens is a Belgian performance artist, born in 1988. He's doing his final bachelor year at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp.
