Geert Goiris - Lost in Space
Vandaele Editie 2003

The presentation LOST IN SPACE by Geert Goiris ( 1971) can be considered as a side step in his ongoing series of photographs RESONANCE.

Whereas the Resonance series consist of very precise large format prints of desolate landscapes with intriguing elements left behind by humans, the presentation Lost in space is a set of 12 small size photographs brought together in a book made especially for this exhibition. The photographs are formally very different from the images Goiris usually makes, yet they share some of the same themes and interest such as a confusion of size,scale and time, a connection with naieve Science-fiction; and a sense of something being left behind. A forgotten trace of a recent past.
