Jef Geys at Essex Street


Reflexivity in art, a long tradition of who can silver their mirrors with blank ham-handery best, e.g. Daniel Buren, Zobernig, Stella, Codax, etc. who strip content to make the bluntest blankest things forcing interest everywhere besides the art, is for Geys more a process of stuffing your navel elegantly full of mirrors to gaze en abyme into it, packing them tightly, pristinely, to see a hall of navels winking like eyes, the rules of Gey's objects - well indexed in the PR - redirecting you through this hallowed hall of art that supports so much of it, which if you look close enough through the mirrors you will see that its white skin walls are flush with blood.
