Does the bounty of the e-flux mailer know no bounds? Today an AFC tipster alerted us to yet another worst.press.release ever. candidate distributed by this service. Frankly, I’m not sure “Penetration at Manifest 8” qualifies. Sure, the copious talk of what artists do to “penetrate” and who’s allowed to do it is enjoyably ill-conceived, but the release is at least readable. I’m listing it below, without annotation. Readers are smart enough to suss out double entendres without me pointing them out.
Penetration at Manifesta 8 / for Northern African artists only
Thierry Geoffroy / Colonel, Penetration Space
until 9 January 2011
A Penetration is the act of an artist placing an artwork within another artist’s existing exhibition.
At Manifesta Biennial Thierry Geoffroy / Colonel is opening his exhibition space for last minute Penetrations.
The Colonel’s Penetration space at Manifesta is reserved only to artists from Northern Africa having pertinent work about today.
The theme of the Manifesta Biennial is: “in dialogue with Northern Africa”
To be part of the Penetration, artists from Northern Africa can just come and install their work at San Anton Prison in Cataregna on any day that they have a pertinent art work. Every time they install a Penetration work they are kindly asked to send photographs of their installation to Thierry Geoffroy / Colonel so the blog can be updated and a catalogue created: email@example.com
Thierry Geoffroy / Colonel has responded to the invitation to take part at Manifesta by the curators ofCPS: Khaled Ramadan and Alfredo Cramerotti and is co-working with BIENNALIST
Thierry Geoffroy creates a debating format.
