A museum artist par excellence, Parreno confronts himself for the first time with the legacy of the cinema theatre. In one go, he also gives the concept of the ‘retrospective’ a completely new twist.

Philippe Parreno revives the many short films from his installation work as a visual artist by blending them into one feature-length mesmerising new project. Extra ingredients are a live piano score, an Indonesian puppet master and 3D glasses. The result is a hallucinatory trip through time and space, also thanks to the briljant camerawork by Darius Khondji.
