Born 1970, Neerpelt, Belgium.
Gideon Kiefer\\\'s work is mostly about the relativity of freedom and the tragedy of powerlessness. In his drawings so-called people with power - doctors, scientists, businessmen... - seem to be in control of their world. But in an alienating way Kiefer emphasizes that power is immanently related to impotency and therefore relative. The recurring network of perspective and composition-lines in his work are like a metaphor for structure, order and depth, but can also be interpreted as a tangle, as a grid in which the system is likely to get trapped.
