Pieter Geenen’s work consists of audiovisual impressions of physical space, in relation to time and duration. The landscapes, public spaces and fragments of ordinary life he films, seem to represent space, but only as a reference, a mere abstraction. Geenen searches for patterns and structures: human presence becomes small and anonymous. The world is presented as being in perpetual movement, from which only certain periods or sequences are seemingly captured to recreate reality, creating a sense of repetition and continuity, but also of stagnation.

After his Master of Fine Arts degree in photography, Geenen completed the international postgraduate program Transmedia at Sint-Lukas University College of Art and Design in Brussels. His audiovisual work has been presented at the International Film Festival Rotterdam, New York Film Festival, Hong Kong International Film Festival, Images Festival Toronto, DocLisboa, EXiS Seoul, FID Marseille, Rencontres Internationales Paris/Berlin/Madrid, Centre Pompidou-Metz, ARGOS Centre for Art and Media (Brussels), La Capella Barcelona, FRAC Basse-Normandie and Médiathèque FMAC Geneva, amongst other places. In 2007 he received the 'Input/Output Art Prize' for emerging artists and in 2011 he was awarded the first prize 'Fondation Henri Servais' from the Art'Contest Art Prize in Belgium.

Together with Sirah Foighel Brutmann, Eitan Efrat and Meggy Rustamova he's a founding member of Messidor, a platform for reflection on, and the production and distribution of moving images.
