Pieter Geenen (1979, Hasselt)
Artworks by this artist
At the Strait of Gibraltar, the European and African continents almost join up. That apparent accessibility makes countless refugees risk the crossing. On the European side, tourists take snapshots of the stupendous view from Mirador del Estrecho, the southernmost point of Spain. They comment on what they see, and are amazed at the hodgepodge of languages from across the African mainland. Pieter Geenen (b.1979, Hasselt) explores the landscape as bearer of significance and is fascinated by border zones and conflict regions.
