Philippe Parreno - Federico

Philippe Parreno - Federico

Philippe Parreno (born Algeria 1964) is an internationally acclaimed French artist known for creating works that question the boundaries between reality and fiction, working in a diverse range of media including drawing, sculpture and film. Exclusively for the Serpentine Gallery, Parreno has produced two limited editions, each touching upon themes of furtive apparitions and ghostly presences.

Federico, an acid engraving on glass, was originally inspired by the house of deceased Spainish poet, Federico García Lorca. Reconfigured for the Serpentine Gallery, the glass etching, which resembles a trace of condensation, is placed where García Lorca's breath would have appeared as he looked out upon the falling snow in Kensington Gardens.
