Geert Mul at SCHUNCK, Heerlen
We are proud to share that Geert Mul is currently showing some of his works at the group exhibition ‘In search of Sharawadgi’ on view at SCHUNCK, Heerlen.
‘In Search of Sharawadgi’ presents the ideas and dreams of Piet Oudolf and LOLA Landscape Architects. Piet Oudolf is Holland’s most well-known garden designer and he has completed famous projects such as the High Line in New York. The exhibition takes visitors on a journey, showing them how public gardens and landscapes across the world have been transformed. From the High Line in New York, the gardens of Hauser & Wirth in Somerset, the Star Maze in Tytsjerk to the Leisure Lane in Parkstad. Familiarise yourself with Oudolf’s and LOLA’s ultimate vision for the future: a global forest against the warming of the earth. It is a dream that can start in anyone’s garden, however big or small.

ABOUT Geert Mul
Born in 1965 in Alphen aan den Rijn, NL
Lives and works in Rotterdam, NL
Geert Mul has been exploring for over 25 years the possibilities of a poetry in the language of new media. This resulted in a flow of experimental artworks in a wide range of media: prints, light-objects, video and interactive/generative computer installations. In Mul’s works, the interrelationship between technology, media and perception is a central theme. Mul’s practice engages the broader public through commissioned artworks in public space.
Geert Mul studied art from 1985 -1990 at the HKA Arnhem where he graduated with computer animations, video and kinetic sculptures. After his studies, he traveled in Mexico, the United States and Asia. He resided for one year in Tokyo. Since 1993 Mul lives and works in Rotterdam, Holland. In the mid-1990s, Mul became one of the first VJ’s, in the alternative Techno scene. These events grew into interactive audio-visual environments, commissioned artworks and installations which were exhibited in a variety of contexts: public space, museums and festivals. Mul has produced over 20 commissioned art installations and exhibited at the Museum Boijmans van Beuningen Rotterdam, Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, The National Museum of Modern Art Kyoto Japan, Museo Nacional Reina Sofia Madrid, Institute Valencia Arte Moderne, Museum of contemporary Art Chicago.
Geert Mul teaches “Unstable Media” at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie (DogTime).
