Philippe Parreno

Philippe was one of the filmmakers of Zidane, A 21st Century Portrait, which was shown at MIF13. Philippe also directed Il Tempo del Postino for MIF07.

Philippe Parreno 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 radically redefined the exhibition experience by conceiving his shows as a scripted space where a series of events unfolds. This is a question of creating, in a given volume, as much space and time as possible by folding and unfolding the space onto itself.

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 internationally acclaimed film and sound crews including sound artist Nicolas Becker, sound mixer Cyril Holtz, cinematographer Darius Khondji, and film editor Hervé Schneid.

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.
