Interview with Philippe Parreno

Presented as part of the Berliner Festspiele’s Immersion program, visitors were truly submerged within Parreno’s world: blinds automatically opened and closed; fish balloons floated up and down; Berlin radio stations were audible, then silenced; subtle vibrations created water lily patterns in a pool of water; a bioreactor fed a yeast colony, the microorganisms of which recorded the exhibition’s functioning. One could sense that everything is connected, but, as is often the case with Parreno’s work, it is unclear exactly who or what is in control. In the video, watch as the artist explains the exhibition’s inner functions.
