Part of #documentasceptic by Thierry Geoffroy/ COLONEL:

+ a new book about tents and questioning the structure

"Memory has to be trained in the now"/ "History is contemporary", at Parko Eleftherias, April 4th 2017
"To express aesthetically about the crisis is not going to solve it" at Syntagma Square, April 8th 2017

During the last week's opening of documenta 14 in Athens, Thierry Geoffroy/ COLONEL has produced 4 new tent-artworks.

The artist has been using tents since 1991. Tents can be both looked at as paintings and as sculptures. The artist uses the sides of a tent as a canvas for painted statements. After, each tent becomes a mobile sculptural object.

Some of Thierry Geoffroy/COLONEL’s previous tent artworks have been exhibited in The Maldives Pavilion, Venice Biennale, IT; The ZKM Museum, Karlsruhe, DE; Marta Herford - Museum für moderne Kunst, Herford, DE; Kunsthalle Osnabrück, Osnabrück, DE.  The tents are also in the collection of Museum of Contemporary Art, Danmark as well as private collections in Paris, Copenhagen, and São Paulo.
