Non-destructive. Non-intrusive. Trees dressed up. Cacti as mannequins. The arms, the buds, the trunk, the legs. Wrapped in patterned shadows. Nature, all the rage. A case study.
Ger’s works from Joshua Tree are quite site-specific. It's all about the place and the process. Being part of the environment for a point in time and creating ephemeral playgrounds.
The biggest impact on his body of work during the Joshua Tree Highlands Artist Residency in summer 2012 have had the ever present (even though blurred) borders between human and nature.
He tried to have a very childish and naive view on things and to forget about every single detail he might have already known. It also means seeing Joshua trees as people. He fell in love.
