“The exhibition is conceived as a scripted space, like an automaton, producing different temporalities, a rhythm, an itinerary, and a duration. The visitor is guided through the spaces by the appearance and orchestration of sounds and images... a mental choreography.” – Philippe Parreno

Philippe Parreno is interested more in the dynamics of how a work of art is shown to the public than in its actual production, and in his films, installations, performances and texts, he subverts the codes normally applied to exhibition spaces. He places the construction of the exhibition at the heart of his process, approaching it through different formats and redefining the exhibition experience as a coherent object rather than as a collection of individual works.

Produced in conjunction with the
 exhibitions Philippe Parreno: H {N)Y P N(Y} OSIS, co-curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist and Alex Poots, with consulting curator Tom Eccles, at Park Avenue Armory, New York (June 11 – August 2, 2015) and Philippe Parreno: HYPOTHESIS curated by Andrea Lissoni, Pirelli HangarBicocca, Milan (October 22, 2015 – February 14, 2016) – this monograph offers a rich critical overview of his work, with essays by Cyril Béghin, Molly Nesbit, Brian O’Doherty and Adam Thirlwell, and two interviews with Hans Ulrich Obrist and Andrea Lissoni.
