Lisbon & Estoril Film Festival


PHILIPPE PARRENO: “A Time Coloured Space” at the Serralves Museum

The French artist Philippe Parreno, a guest of the Lisbon & Estoril Film Festival in 2014 and 2016, presents A Time Coloured Space, a major exhibition occupying the entire building of the Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art, in Porto, between February 3rd and May 7.

Parreno´s first exhibit in Portugal, it showcases his artistic path since the 1990s and is structured around the ideas of series and repetition, referring to three fundamental dimensions: sound, space and time.

Among the works included are Parreno’s Speech Bubbles (helium-filled balloons inspired by Andy Warhol’s Silver Clouds), Fraught Times: For Eleven Months of the Year it's an Artwork and then December it’s Christmas, an ongoing series of aluminium sculptures cast as snow-covered Christmas trees, and more than 180 of Parreno’s ink drawings, created between 2012 and 2015, forming the Fireflies series.

A multifaceted artist (his work frequently draws from video, sculpture, performance, drawings and text), Philippe Parreno is also known for the film Zidane: Un portrait du 21e Siècle (which premiered in Portugal at LEFFEST), a documentary co-directed by Douglas Gordon, featuring an original soundtrack by Scottish band Mogwai.

Parreno was a guest and a member of the Jury of the LEFFEST’14, which dedicated a CinemArt section to his film work, with the screening of two films, presented by Catherine Grenier and Marie-Laure Bernadac: C.H.Z. (Continuously Habitable Zones), from 2011, shot near Porto, and Marilyn (2012).

Returning to the LEFFEST in 2016, Philippe Parreno took part in a couple of debates around Jean-Luc Godard’s films, shown in a complete retrospective during the Festival, namely Tout Va Bien and Contempt, in the company of Adam Thirwell and Arto Lindsay.
