Philippe Parreno: Thenabouts
Tuesday 6 December 2016 to Monday 13 March 2017
ACMI (Australian Centre for the Moving Image) presents the first Australian solo exhibition of internationally acclaimed French artist and filmmaker, Philippe Parreno, in free exhibition Philippe Parreno: Thenabouts from Tuesday 6 December 2016 to Monday 13 March 2017. Fresh from opening his triumphant exhibition Anywhen for the prestigious annual Turbine Hall Commission at London’s premiere contemporary art gallery, Tate Modern, Parreno introduces his innovative and experimental practice to Australian audiences with Thenabouts. Occupying ACMI’s subterranean gallery, this exhibition will be the first-ever retrospective of Parreno’s filmic works, as a cinematic ensemble that bends temporal and spatial boundaries. The exhibition guides the visitor through a complex journey of images, duration, memory, and the passage of time. Every visitor’s viewing experience will be unique.
Parreno is a collaborative artist whose practice encompasses film, sculpture, drawing, and text. The dialogic nature of his work is evident in the films and exhibitions that have been produced through collaboration with artists, architects, musicians, composers and philosophers. Through work that draws on cinema, science fiction, architecture, the phantasmagorical, and the natural, Parreno merges reality and fiction to produce exhibitions that radically challenge our notions of reality, memory and the passage of time. Since 1988, when his first film Fleurs (1987) was presented as a background for a weather broadcast on French television, Philippe Parreno has sought to redefine the exhibition experience. Working with the exhibition itself as a medium, Parreno explores its possibilities beyond the presentation of individual works to create scripted spaces within which a series of events unfolds.
