Philippe Parreno’s reputation has been built on his work’s originality and on the diversity and variety of his practice, including film, sculpture, performance, drawing, and writing. The Palais de Tokyo is one of the few spaces in which such an experience of these epic proportions experience can occur. Parreno is the first artist invited to occupy the entirety of the Palais de Tokyo’s expanded space of 22,000 square metres.
Philippe Parreno has radically transformed the monumental space of the Palais de Tokyo. He has devised an exhibition driven by his dialogue with architecture and with the notion of the exhibition as a medium in its own right. Anywhere, Anywhere out of the world celebrates an artist whose works, ideas, and approach exercise considerable influence and have irrefutably reshaped our idea of art.
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.
