The French-Danish conceptual artist, also known as Colonel or the “Biennalist,” works with formats analogous to the commercial media. In the TV series Capitain, he himself is the main figure, a chaotic-seeming tourist who in his pseudo-naïveté arrives at the critical point, finding in taboo-free Denmark the possibilities to live out his “wildest dreams.” In Visibility, he observes that “culture is every where:” Geoffrey registers the ambivalent successes of modernism.
