Palais De Tokyo

We went to a phenomenal series of Art exhibitions last week at the Palais De Tokyo in Paris. Video artist Ed Atkins made us question reality, self-love, and the concept of being human with “Bastards”; a video shown in a dark room, complete with surround sound and pillowed walls that let us melt into the world he presented. In Ange Leccia’s installation entitled ‘Never the sea retires’, we were awakened and reminded of the power of our ocean as we watched her take a cinematic angle on the waves crashing down on the shore.

McMillen, Steve McQueen, Philip Metz, Deimantas Narkevicius, Tony Oursler, Daniel Pommereulle Benoit Pype, Delphine Reist, Lili Reynaud Dewar, Jimmy Robert, Miri Segal, Pablo Vargas Lugo.
