Andrea Geyer investigates the ambiguities surrounding identity using a variety of tactics that confound our notions of the real, the imagined, and the subjective.

Andrea Geyer

Andrea Geyer explores the fluidity of identities in her installations and performances, particularly in regards to citizenship and the complexities of representation. She often incorporates photography, text, slides, and other documentary elements in her work, as well as fictionalized aspects. Recent projects include “9 Scripts from a Nation at War,” a collaboration with Sharon Hayes, Ashley Hunt, Katya Sander, and David Throne, which consisted of a 10-channel video installation of reflections and discussions about the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Her works have been shown around the world, including at the Tate Modern and the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York.
