Gérard Collin-Thiébaut (b.1946) is a French conceptual and installation artist whose "attitude is simple if radical. His purpose is to overturn convention and give the tree of the art world a good shaking, "when habits become form".
Often elegant and deliberately traditional, even old-fashioned in appearance, his interventions suggest that things are easy, but go on to demonstrate that modernity is never what you see on the surface. […]
Throughout his artistic career, he has worked to pursue the various categories of the fine arts using procedures of the day, bringing out correspondences, in order to achieve transversal knowledge and not only to allow a rereading of the world, but also to affirm that thought is a matter, not of found forms, but of forms that transform Not insignificant clues: Paul Otlet, Aby Warburg, Roussel, Duchamp, Flaubert, folk art.“
(Jean-Philippe Branche)
