PHILIPPE PARRENO AT PALAIS DE TOKYO
Opening to the public tomorrow is this carte blanche from the Paris based conceptual artist Philippe Parreno. Parreno is the first artist invited to occupy the entirety of the Palais de Tokyo’s expanded 22,000m2 space. A lover of narratives, he has orchestrated the exhibition, ‘Anywhere, Anywhere, Out of the World’ along the lines of a dramatic composition where the spectral presence of objects, music, lights, and films guide and manipulate the visitor’s experience, offering a journey through his works, both old and new, transforming this monologue into a polyphony. Philippe Parreno plays with symbols, words, and sounds, to alter the visitor’s perception of the space. His meticulously mastered script metamorphoses the building itself into a quasi-living, perpetually evolving organism, into an automaton, and a medium in its own right. The Palais de Tokyo is one of the few spaces in which an experience of these epic proportions can occur.
Until 12 Jan 2014. Noon-midnight. Closed Tue.
Palais de Tokyo, 13 avenue du Président Wilson, 16th. www.palaisdetokyo.com/
