Philippe Parreno, Synchronicity

Source:Global Times Published: 2017/9/3 18:23:39

Over the past twenty years, Parreno has radically redefined the exhibition-going experience by exploring its possibilities as a medium in its own right. Realized in dialogue with the physicality and functionality of the museum's architecture, this exhibition will alter the building's current existence through an unexpected use of time, space, light and sound to become a semi-automated puppet; a perpetual motion of events in which Parreno subverts the conventions of the gallery space. On the museum's glass rooftop, Parreno will install a heliostat that will direct sunlight down into the fourth-floor space in a carefully choreographed ensemble of natural light that dances in sync with the movement of the blinds. A vertical plane in line with the building's own axis will cut through the spaces of the exhibition, each floor becoming a template of the other. The plane will be visible on the first floor lobby next to a rotating secret bookcase door; on the second floor, a large-scale screen will play a new rendition of Parreno's 2000 film Anywhere Out Of the World.
