1301PE is pleased to announce the opening of Philippe Parreno's exhibition, Synchronicity, at the Rockbund Art Museum. It will be Parreno's first major solo exhibition in China. This exhibition is dedicated to the late Xavier Douroux whose influence on Parreno's career cannot be overstated.
Curated by the Director of the museum, Larys Frogier, Parreno's first exhibition in China will occupy four of the museum's six floors, also extending to its seventh floor glass rooftop.
Over the past twenty years, Parreno has radically redefined the exhibition going experience by exploring its possibilities as a medium in its own right. Realised in dialogue with the physicality and functionality of the museum's architecture, the exhibition will alter the building's current existence through an unexpected use of time, space, light, and sound to become a semi automated puppet, a perpetual motion of events in which Parreno subverts the conventions of the gallery space.
