    Profile:

    Andrea Geyer is a multi-disciplinary artist un-sensing the construction and politics of time. With a particular focus on those who identify or at some point were identified as woman, her works use photography, performance, video, drawing and painting to activate the lingering potential of specific events, sites or biographies. In her work, she continuously tries to find new ways to materialize the entanglement of presence and absence in the face of ideologically motivated omissions. She believes that art should be a site to offer the possibility of re-orientation(s) towards a current moment. She lives and works in New York. To see most recent works go to www.andreageyer.info
