Speaker - Philippe Parreno

 Philippe  Parreno  Thumbnail


Born in Oran, Algeria in 1964, Philippe Parreno creates works that question the boundaries between reality and fiction, exploring the nebulous realm in which the real and the imagined blur and combine. Working in a diverse range of media including sculpture, drawing, film, and performance Parreno seeks to expand our understanding of duration, inviting us to radically re-evaluate the nature of reality, memory, and the passage of time.

Recent solo exhibitions include Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin (2009); Musée national d'Art moderne - Centre Georges Pompidou (2009) and Kunsthalle Zürich (2009). Parreno's work is represented in collections including: Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; Kanazawa Museum of the 21st Century, Japan; Musée D'Art Moderne de le Ville de Paris; Musée du Luxembourg, MOMA, New York; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; Tate Modern, London, and the Walker Art Centre, Minneapolis. Parreno lives and works in Paris.
