In Geiger’s work, series are fundamental, because they allow her to develop mutations, variations and metamorphoses on a central theme. The artist, one of the pioneers of video-art thanks to the time she has spent in New York since 1970, works on ideas such as territory, passage and situation in a variety of media including drawing, photography, painting and video. As well as the Mapas elementares series shown here, mention should be made of the work Passagens (Passages), which deals with the temporary occupation of public spaces undergoing processes of urban transformation.
