Philippe Parreno: Anywhere, Anywhere Out of the World

Philippe Parreno’s exhibition titled ‘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.

Parreno, one of the most original figures of the international art world, has radically transformed the monumental space of the Palais de Tokyo in Paris. In response to its carte blanche invitation to exhibit, Parreno devised an exhibition driven by his dialogue with architecture and with the notion of the exhibition as a medium in its own right.

“The exhibition is conceived as a scripted space, like an automaton, producing different temporalities, a rhythm, an itinerary and a duration. The visitor is guided through the spaces by the appearance and orchestration of sounds and images… a mental choreography,” said Parreno.

Parreno explores origins of the exhibition, seen as an heir to the circus and the theatre. Understood in this way, it draws on the dramaturgical mechanics of the 19th century. Apparitions, suggestions, miracles, mechanical illusions, music hall, and ventriloquism are the elements within which Parreno inscribes his stories, his films, and his objects.

Since the 1990s, Philippe Parreno’s reputation has been built on the originality of his work and on the diversity and variety of his practice, including film, sculpture, performance, drawing, and writing.

Parreno is the first artist invited to occupy the entirety of the Palais de Tokyo’s expanded space.

The Palais de Tokyo is one of the few spaces in which such an experience of these epic proportions experience can occur.

Philippe Parreno ‘Anywhere, Anywhere, Out of the World’ is on display until Monday 13 January 2013 at the Palais de Tokyo, Paris.
