Dunkelheit VIII

painted fiberglass, steel, magnets

Like an anarchist who has studied every stitch and fold of the banker's suit, Jiri Geller models and subverts the iconic forms of contemporary culture with vengeful precision.

While - not inaccurately - self-defining as "an outsider, a punk rocker", Geller is also the rare Finnish artist who has both managed to stay close to Finnish aesthetic strengths and traditions and also detonate his own unique brand of post-national, mind-f*cker nihilism.
