The first stop of this 4,500 sq. m occurred in New York. The background to this unusual undertaking is as follows: Colbert made a great impression with his personal exhibition at the Arsenal during the Venice Art Biennale 2003 on the President of the Rolex company, who bought up all his works and encouraged him to promote his art as widely as possible. The structure of the building is based on a frame of containers, between which the fabric is stretched. Visitors approach the museum along a dilapidated pier, then crossing a small wooden bridge. Photos hang between cardboard stands and appear to be floating. Along with the hundreds of works on display, the exhibition is complemented by a "moving library" - the projected pages of Colbert's book - essentially a film depicting a man dancing with elephants. After the exhibition closes on July 6, 2005, the museum will be dismantled and sent to Los Angeles, and then to Paris and Beijing.
