Embracing Unknowns: Philippe Parreno

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal article


Over the course of nearly four decades and across a diverse range of mediums, Philippe Parenno has investigated such fundamental concepts as language and communication, time and memory, and the nature of reality and fiction. A frequent collaborator with fellow artists and curators, from Liam Gillick to Hans-Ulrich Obrist, Parreno often works on a massive scale to produce installations that are inherently site-specific-from the Tate Modern's Turbine Hall to the Palais de Tokyo in Paris. On the occasion of a major exhibition in Seoul, the acclaimed Algerian-born French artist sat down with ArtAsiaPacific to discuss Ai-generated language, the power of the cinematic medium, and the importance of embracing the unknown. "VOICES," currently on view at the Leeum Museum of Art in Seoul, is the largest survey of your work in Asia to date.
