Guillaume Leblon: Parade, 19 Oct 2022 — 08 Jan 2023

Guillaume Leblon: Parade

The title of his exhibition plays on the double meaning of the term “parade” in French. In one sense it suggests staging an event which can be either carnivalesque or authoritarian. In French, it also suggests subterfuge, feint or trickery.

Palais de Tokyo, 13 Av. du Président Wilson, 75116

Parade is Guillaume Leblon’s first retrospective exhibition in Paris. For the occasion, he has designed a display that unfolds both inside and outside the Palais de Tokyo, including onto the esplanade that overlooks the Seine. As a sculptor, Guillaume Leblon does not conceive objects to be looked at, but likes to create a place, a theatre set, both intimate and public, physical and mental, through which the public can wander. For this exhibition, he has created a new version of his work Face contre terre (Face down, 2010-2022), which is made up of hundreds of items of furniture and scrap pieces of wood that together compose a materialist landscape that is a floor to walk across, but also the base for a series of sculptures mounted on a rail that create the sensation of movement, like figures on parade.
