Geer Steyn (1945) is a master of the sculptured medal, but is also the sculptor of fragments of the human body. Whether he creates a medal, head, torso or a pair of legs (always in serial), his work serves the same purpose: defining the concept of ‘space’ and the interplay with gravity. This spring Geer Steyn exhibits an overview of his medals and sculptures in museum Beelden aan Zee.
The monograph Geer Steyn. Sculptor will be issued to accompany the exhibition, with contributions by Jadwiga Pol, Albert Smit, Hans Sizoo, Geer Steyn and Jan Teeuwisse (Waanders uitgevers, Zwolle, € 24,95). A movie, by Rianne van Schijndel, about the artist wil be displayed during the exhibition.
