Jacqueline van de Geer (NL / CA)

Born in the Netherlands and immigrated in 2005 to Canada, Jacqueline van de Geer (1958) is thrilled to be part of the Montreal eclectic art community. In her artist-practice, either if it is a visual work or a performance, she loves to create a space in which the audience is invited to participate. Intimacy and re- connection are the key words in her work, which aims to open up the collective experience. This can be happening in various settings, such as a gallery, a hotel-room, a closed corner of a hall, a tent or a performance space. Small props, songs, sounds, smells, pictures, clothes, souvenirs, postcards, drawings and personal stories and memories create an intimate level in order to establish a strong connection and communication with her participants. The goal is to transform the distance between the artist and spectator into an encounter where this distance will be finally resolved almost entirely, inviting both parties to be real and in the moment. This can happen either through a live performance or an interactive installation.
