REDEFINING GALLERY EXPERIENCE

Philippe Parreno at the Tate

25th Apr 2016

Opening at the Tate Modern from October 2016 until April 2017, this year’s Hyundai Commission will be undertaken by Philippe Parreno, a key artist of his generation. Parreno is a French artist who works across film, video, sound, sculpture, performance and information technology. He explores the borders between reality and fiction and is known for investigating and redefining the gallery-going experience. By creating kaleidoscopic environments, he treats exhibitions as one coherent whole rather than a series of objects within a space. The Hyundai Commission is a series of site-specific installations by contemporary artists in Tate Modern’s iconic Turbine Hall.

Having collaborated with many visual artists as well as musicians, architects, scientists and writers, Parreno continues the tradition of the avant-garde artist engaged with many cultural disciplines. Recently he presented a vast installation, H {N)Y P N(Y} OSIS at Park Avenue Armory, New York (2015), which fused film, light, sound and performance to create a dramatic sensory journey.

“Throughout his career Parreno has sought to transform how art can work, and his desire to create new immersive experiences makes him the perfect choice for the Turbine Hall. We look forward to seeing how he uses this iconic space when the commission is unveiled in October.” - Chris Dercon, Director, Tate Modern

Following Abraham Cruzvillegas’ inaugural Hyundai Commission Empty Lot (2015), Philippe Parreno’s installation is bound to be thought-provoking and full of visual (and other sensory) surprises. We anticipate a semblance to the interactive gallery at the Science Museum; a highbrow treat for the child in all of us.
