press release

Featuring works that are randomly activated, ONE SECOND ONE YEAR is an exhibition put on pause or in fast-forward. It is impossible to determine the exact moment any of the pieces might (or might not) take place. ONE SECOND ONE YEAR creates an experience of suspense, and perhaps of frustration, endlessly moving back and forth between the two. The temporality of the work of art becomes elastic and operates without any possible prediction.

Like any other exhibition, ONE SECOND ONE YEAR allows viewers to experience each one of the works included and it will remain on view until all works have taken place. Some pieces will become "visible" several times a day while others only once, such as the famous work by Alighiero e Boetti, a box containing a light bulb that only lights up once a year. Works that might not have been activated during the show’s official dates will be placed like parasites throughout the Palais de Tokyo until the moment they occur.

ALIGHIERO E BOETTI / FRANЗOIS CURLET / LARA FAVARETTO / GRAHAM GUSSIN / LEOPOLD KESSLER / KRISTOF KINTERA / JONATHAN MONK / FERNANDO ORTEGA / WERNER REITERER / ROMAN SIGNER / KRIS VLEESCHOUWER(the list is being expanded)
