Certificate orchestrated event: l
ight, motorised blinds/curtains, DMX controller, oversized window handle, window frame

The title of the work refers playfully to interior design. Additional blinds with electrical motors are installed in front of the windows and go up and down in a particular rhythm.

Marquee, 2007

Plexiglas, 8 Neon, 11 light bulbs (60 and 75 Watt)

The work consists of a body made of Plexiglas, light bulbs, neon tubes and triangular brackets on top and was installed at the entrance of Esther Schipper Berlin for this exhibition. Based on marquees traditionally used to announce theatre or film performance, the artist's versions have no writing, only light and its rhythm.

Ohne Titel, 2007
15 wax candles

The set of 15 curiously over-dimensioned birthday candles refers to the artist's
solo exhibition Interior Cartoons at Esther Schipper in 2006. The candles have been briefly lighted and are installed as a group, leaning in the corner of a empty space.

Philippe Parreno’s solo exhibition at Esther Schipper in 2007 opens exactly one year after his last exhibition at Esther Schipper had closed. For the short period of a single week, the exhibition marks both, an echo, as well as a celebration of the exhibition from the year before. Every element in the exhibition is closely tied to the installation in 2006. An intricate net of references is thus laid out, where every object becomes a signifier of an event of the past, which it now reverberates into the present.
