Gerard Geer – Tidepool
Tidepool is an exhibition of new articulated animal bone sculptures by Gerard Geer. In creating this series, Geer explores a potential connection between land mammals and ocean creatures, imagining that cephalopod-like creatures could evolve in a way that could bring them to land while retaining some of their strongly ocean-evolved features. In addition, he sought to explore the relationships among these creatures: perhaps rather than being solitary creatures, like they might have been in the ocean (as in our world’s evolutionary path), they might become social creatures.
Opening night: Saturday, April 6, from 6pm – 9pm. Free entry. Gerard will be in attendance.
This exhibition runs from April 7 to April 28 and runs alongside Lukifer Aurelius’ solo show Inner Spaces and Adrian Cox’s solo show Awakenings.
Geer explores this connection among the creatures in this body of work through expressive facial tentacles, which the creatures use to probe the environment around them, communicate with one another...
