Parreno 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 orchestrates his exhibition at the Palais de Tokyo 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.
