THIERRY TILLIER Interview by Anne Sophie

Thierry Tillier ( le futur du passe, 2007



Thierry Tillier is a Belgian artist living in Charleroi.

His technique is mostly Collage but also photography, etc…

His works are visual short-circuits with many meaning stratums ;

aesthetic and poetical flashes torn, cut and layed out into brocken puzzles.

The themes explored in his work are numerous and the understanding lies

in-between the choice, placement of ripped images and nothingness.

He answered a few questions on themes…

History of Art and Religion as sources of inpiration
“It is more a work on heresies
(Bogomils, brothers and sisters of the Free Spirit,
 Gnostics sects, loists, etc,,,),
collective mesianism than on Religion ;
and History of art because it doesn’t exist,
 even if this isn’t true.”
