Performance by GTB and Nadège Piton (soundtrack by Baraclough)
Opening SI/CO on 27/03/10 at 19h00 Nadège Piton, accompanied by The Lampshade Is Not A Past Tense by Baraclough, had to find her way through Wallgallery’s vernissage crowd towards the facade. She was dressed in ‘foulards’ by Sico Carlier in a fashion by Geerten Ten Bosch that unabled her to see. When she reached the windows she started covering them in buttermilk, crisscrossing the room. The more the view faded the more she undressed and after a good part of an hour Nadège was naked as she covered the last windows. When the view finally was gone the performance ended.

QUOTE-UNQUOTE on Sico Carlier

Les Bandistas, garde rapprochée aux talents multiples…nottament par sa capacité à garder la tête haute, hors de l’eau, en plein marasme économique…()…Sico Carlier, un artiste d’origine hollandais à la pointe des derniers innovations. /Quotidien le Monde, Paris, 2008

Dont les confins sont ailleurs, où ce qui nous guide est la composition, la surimpression, la bribe. Etonnamment, c’est un sentiment d’unité qui se dégage du magazine et presque la difficulté d’y pénétrer. La direction artistique, tenue par Sico Carlier avec Change is Good à Paris, assure une lisibilité et une cohésion qui font que Currency ne ressemble à aucun autre. /Editor in Chief Angelo Cirimile, Magazine #33, Paris, 2006

Pretty confusing in an amusing way…witty, not to mention the fresh visuals…I believe this is an act of a self assured criminal. /Art-Director Hideki Nakajima, Esquire Japan, 2004

Of interest are several Dutch artists seldom seen in New York…()…Another is Sico Carlier, whose witty text pieces appear throughout the gallery. /Holland Cotter, The New York Times, 2001
