The exhibition titled Inside opened at the Palais de Tokyo, Paris on 20 October. A metaphorical journey, using art as a discovery tour of our inner selves.

INSIDE exhibition at the Palais de Tokyo, Paris
The Palais de Tokyo, Paris, established in 2002 as an anti-museum and since 2012 one of Europe’s biggest contemporary art venues, presents the INSIDE exhibition.
Broadly speaking, the title references our own “interiors”, namely a journey inside ourselves. So, the art exhibited for INSIDE provides the medium to explore not so much the artistic expressions as such, as the spatial and interior relations that develop between the artwork and the visitor. The artist becomes the creator of images that form inside our heads.
The artworks exhibited on two floors range from social installations like “Tape” by the Numen/For use group, to more strictly architecture installations like “Three Sections” by Marcius Galan, who proposes a physical and mental game on the space around us.  
Visitors to the INSIDE exhibition must start their adventure by stepping into the forest, full of references to ancestral and wild nature, created by artist Eva Jospin and it ends with a historical artwork by Bruce Nauman from 1968. This sound installation repeats itself in a continuous cycle and serves to free visitors from the visual and imaginary images that the art exhibits evoked in their minds.
INSIDE at the Palais de Tokyo is open until 11 January 2015.
