Geoffrey Farmer
 
The artistic practice of Geoffrey Farmer (born 1967 in Vancouver, where he lives and works) integrates forms of collecting and scholarship employed by cultural historians, and draws on a diverse repertoire. After extensive research, the artist builds collections that unite aspects of visual art, literature, music, politics, history, and sociology, and crystallize in sprawling theatrical installations.
In 2012, Geoffrey Farmer contributed his “Leaves of Grass” (2012) to Documenta 13; in 2011, he participated in the 12th Istanbul Biennial. His work has been on display in numerous solo shows, as well as at REDCAT, Los Angeles, and Casey Kaplan Gallery, New York (both 2011). Farmer also participated in the project “The Garden of Forking Paths” (2011), initiated by the Migros Museum of Contemporary Art.
