MURCIA,SPAIN – For the fourth phase of Cannibal

Domino, the South-African artist Kendell Geers is creating an in situ
production-action at Sala Verónicas in Murcia . In one single gesture,
it will
address and invoke the elements, remnants and spirits of the three
preceding
projects by Jimmie Durham, Cristina Lucas and The Bruce High Quality
Foundation,
while at once activating the double colonial representation of the
“other”: the
good native who contributes to the process of acculturation by absorbing
the
prevailing culture, and the cannibal as an embodiment of the savage
pagan to
blame for all social and historical ills. The artist attempts to graft a
savage
perspective into the issue of cannibalism, alluding to the devouring of
the
cultural enemy as an image of terror and, at the same time, as poetic
stance.
