Andrea Geyer: Spiral Lands/Chapter 2
Thu, August 21, 2014–Wed, December 31, 2014
Andrea Geyer digs into the complexities of narrative and imagery to consider how they become solidified into history and art. Her series Spiral Lands concerns history’s tendency to repeat itself. Created at a time when American exceptionalism was coloring the invasion of Iraq, for Geyer, the rhetoric justifying the invasion was reminiscent of that of manifest destiny. A work in three parts, Spiral Lands / Chapter 2, replicates an educational setting: slides of Chaco Canyon and Bandelier National Monument click by as a lecture is continuously broadcast over speakers. The lecture displaces single authorship with a multitude of voices-Native and non-Native alike.
