*ABC, Ecole de Paris* [ABC, School of Paris] is a wall installation made of 15 colored papers. Being a school teacher for years inspired Jef Geys’ image of society; a passion for equality, hierarchy, mastery, shapes and form. This and other installations refer to the Russian avant-garde. He aims art that goes beyond the artwork; art getting out of its borders and uses shape in a more radical way. He defines art as the intensity of daily life. As an artist he does what formally and conceptually relates to the real community; the community of Balen; his hometown.
