Peak Oil by Geert Goiris
Limited edition with print.
By using a suggestive and cinematic style, Geert Goiris proposes “an open narrative which hovers between familiarity and alienation, discovery and confabulation.
Commissioned by Rubis Mécénat cultural fund, Goiris was given permission to the Rubis Terminal sites in Rouen and other sites in Europe.
He tackles the subject from the outside, limiting himself to that particular moment when oil is seemingly without drama. This is not about the technical feat of extracting the oil from the earth, nor about the economic, social and/or geopolitical effects generated by its existence. Rather it is about the in-between stations, the moments when oil is only potentially active.
