On the occasion of Philippe Parreno’s solo exhibition at Fondation Beyeler, the Fondation organized an artist talk with the French artist, who became known for his work that combines different media such as film, sculpture, performance, sound and text. At Fondation Beyeler, Philippe Parreno presents two new films, C.H.Z. (“Continuously Habitable Zones”) and Marilyn, which are accompanied by a choreography of sound and images that includes two of his typical Marquees, a room with drawings, a water lilies installation created by sound waves, and a DVD with a soundtrack by Arto Lindsay that erases itself after a one play.
In this conversation with the curator Hans-Ulrich Obrist, Philippe Parreno talks about the current exhibition at Fondation Beyeler, future projects, and his work in general.
The above video is an excerpt. The full-length video (45:53 min.) is available after the jump. Coming soon: an interview with Philippe Parreno and an exhibition walk-through with statements by Sam Keller, curator Michiko Kono, and Philippe Parreno.
