Four statements: 

  • ALWAYS QUESTION THE STRUCTURE
  • IS DOCUMENTA IN ATHENS TO SELL TANKS FROM KASSEL
  • EMERGENCY WILL REPLACE THE CONTEMPORARY

The artwork was created during the 60-years anniversary of documenta / Kassel as part of "Always question the structure" CUB was questioning documenta's interest in being in Greece.

 

Thierry Geoffroy/ COLONEL has since 1991 been using tents to expressing immediate opinions on art and surrounding world.

The tents can be both looked at as paintings and as sculptures. When exhibited in the public space they even become performative and interactive works. 

The sides of the tents are used by the artist as canvas for painted statements. After the tents become mobile sculptural objects.

The placement of the tent in the public spaces and in important art contexts is the additional layer of value and interpretation, which is embodied in the sculpture.  

Furthermore each tent has been creating important debates among professionals in the art world as well as the press.
