Philippe Parreno (b.1964) rose to prominence in the 1990s, earning critical acclaim for his work, which employs a diversity of media including film, sculpture, performance, drawing and text. Parreno has sought to redefine the exhibition by exploring its possibilities as a coherent experience rather than as a collection of individual objects. He often scripts the exhibition using temporal and spatial sequencing to activate his works while guiding the visitor throughout the space. Currently at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the artist serves as “metteur en scène” (orchestrator) of "Dancing around the Bride" (on view until January 2013), a unique exhibition for which he has choreographed works by Cage, Cunningham, Johns, Rauschenberg and Duchamp. In June 2006, Universal released a feature-length documentary directed by Parreno and Douglas Gordon entitled Zidane: A 21st Century Portrait, which premiered out of competition at the 2006 Cannes film Festival. Since this project, Parreno has worked with an internationally acclaimed film and sound crew including sound artist Nicolas Becker, sound mixer Cyril Holtz, cinematographer Darius Khondji, and film editor Hervé Schneid. His most recent film, Marilyn (2012) is a portrait of a ghost, Marilyn Monroe. The film conjures her with a phantasmagoric seance in the suite at the hotel Waldorf Astoria in New York where she lived in the 1950s. The film reproduced her presence with three algorithms: the camera becomes her eyes, a computer reconstructs the prosody of her voice and a robot recreates her handwriting. His work is represented in the collections of Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; Kanazawa Museum of the 21st Century, Japan; MOMA New York; Musée d’art moderne de la Ville de Paris; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; Tate Modern, London; Walker Art Center, Minneapolis. Recently, Parreno has presented solo exhibitions at Fondation Beyeler, Riehen/Basel (2012); Serpentine Gallery, London (2010-2011); Centre for Curatorial Studies, Bard College, New York (2009–10); Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin (2009–10); Kunsthalle Zürich (2009) and Centre Pompidou, Paris (2009). Parreno lives and works in Paris.
