Thierry Geoffroy / Colonel ( creator of the "Biennalist " format) is an  invited artist of the  maldives  national pavilion @ Venice Biennale. TG  is working on the question " Is climate change still an emergency  ? "CAN A NATION WELCOME ANOTHER NATION ?  "set as an installation in the Maldives pavilion but also TG  was  working to activate a re-climate-change-international-conference :  "COP 18B" asking  the question of relocation of climate refugiés to others National pavilion ( like Israel National pavilion ) posing the question : ,( what will be the relocation scenario for a complete population of the Maldives and other affected countries .
"Is climate change still an Emergency  ? " .

Biennalist wished to insist on starting a debate NOW in Venice , before it is too late and to take advantage of the 40 000 V.I..P. attempding the international art event (almost equivalent to the COP15 ) : Queens , Presidents , Prime Ministers , all medias and rich industriels are on the same location for 3 days in the Giardini . For that self organised mission TG was wearing a blue painted helmet to insist in the " could-have-been task of  the U.N.  if working in tine for pre relocation scenarios . This part of the Biennalist " COP 18 B  "could be almost considered as a faillure as a large serious debate all over the Biennales did not really happened and was unpossible to  spray with the Biennalist small logistic potentiel .  How ever some Nations responded positively to "CAN A NATION WELCOME ANOTHER NATION ? ", especially at the zimbabwe pavilion : The Zimabwe pavilion welcomed for a period of 4 monthes a last minutes negotiated  space called "   emergency room mobile "   in collaboration with Christine Eyene .

Since the start of the format Emergency Room  ( converging  format to Biennalist ) we have debating climate change consequences and have opened new debate platforms to stimulate  emergency debate on this burning topic ( including the HQ at COP 15 with the Yes Men .
