the gift in Paris for ArtCOP21
Today was the first day on the streets of Paris gifting. There is quite a sombre mood walking and in the metro. It is difficult to engage people so I have been leaving the gifts along my way from cafes to the ArtCOP21 show ‘EXIT’ at the Palais de Tokyo.
This show starts with a video of Paul Virillio walking along the banks of a river talking about human migration. The viewer moves into a circular room that has a four video work in the round, moving from right to left exploring data on human migration. A very powerful piece that had the audience captivated for the half hour duration.
