poster for Philippe Parreno Exhibition

Ends in 60 days

A key artist of his generation, Philippe Parreno has radically redefined the exhibition experience by taking it as a medium, placing its construction at the heart of his process. Working in a diverse range of media including film, sculpture, drawing, and text, Parreno conceives his exhibitions as a scripted space where a series of events unfold. He seeks to transform the exhibition visit into a singular experience that plays with spatial and temporal boundaries and the sensory experience of the visitor. For the artist, the exhibition is less a total work of art than a necessary interdependence that offers an ongoing series of open possibilities.
In this exhibition, you may encount his masterpieces including Marquee made of lightbulbs and neons flickering, and Speech Bubbles which is balloon work stuck to a ceiling. And also Ice Man exhibited in Ripples across the Water in 1995, a exhibition by Watari-um collaborated with a legendary curator Jan Hoet, shall get renewed and reappear. Through these colorless and transparent works, we may witness a neo-futuristic landscape in Parreno’s eyes. This is a cutting-edge but also nostalgic, mysterious world of Parreno, which is here today and gone tomorrow.
