Twilight of the Idols
Galerie Ron Mandos is delighted to present Twilight of the Idols, an exclusive online viewing room with works by the acclaimed South African artist Kendell Geers (1968).
Twilight of the Idols features Geers’ iconic sculptures of lost objects wrapped in red-and-white tape. Additionally, this online viewing room presents new paintings of colorful flowers slowly transforming into bullet holes. The intention of these works is to call attention to what is hidden underneath the surface: the psychic presence of African sculptures and the violent stories of slavery. These beautiful works of art make a visceral connection with the viewer so that we will be able to engage with the sometimes hard and ugly realities of our life.
