On the occasion of Natures Mortes, her carte blanche at the Palais de Tokyo, the artist Anne Imhof is the guest editor-in-chief of issue 31 of the magazine PALAIS.
After laying siege to the German pavilion with her masterpiece Faust, for which she was awarded the Golden Lion at the 2017 Venice Biennale, Anne Imhof has taken hold of the entirety of the Palais de Tokyo to create an all-embracing, polyphonic work. Here, she fuses space and bodies, music and painting, and her own works with those of accomplices—the artist Eliza Douglas and thirty other guests.
In this issue :
Interviews of Anne Imhof and Eliza Douglas by Vittoria Matarrese. Texts by Laurence Bertrand Dorléac, Jean René Étienne, Emma Lavigne, Paul B. Preciado, Catherine Wood, Renaud Gadoury and Hugo Vitrani.
A large selection of images of Anne Imhof's work and project at the Palais de Tokyo, including several exhibition views, and of the works of the contemporary and historical artists featured in the Natures Mortes.
Published on the occasion of the exhibition Anne Imhof – Natures Mortes at the Palais de Tokyo, Paris, from May to October 2021.
