While his friend Pierre Huyghe is on show at the Centre Pompidou, Philippe Parreno takes on an exhibition that fills the renovated Palais de Tokyo in its entirety – the first time an artist has been invited to take on this challenge. But what will he do with it all? The question remains open. Showing both well-known works and original pieces, the exhibition ‘Anywhere, Anywhere Out of the World’ is likely to resemble its creator: offbeat, intelligent and eclectic.
The works will examine the fascination exerted by art's codes of narration (in film, but also television and theatre). Covering video, sculpture, performance, drawings and texts, we bet that the artist who became widely known thanks to his film (in collaboration with Douglas Gordon) that followed Zinedine Zidane for the length of a Real Madrid football match will be well able to find a way to occupy the immense space of the building on the Avenue President Wilson.
