Paris | Nouvelles histoires de fantômes, Palais de Tokyo

Nouvelles histoires de fantômes [New Ghost Stories]: exhibition by Georges Didi-Huberman and Arno Gisinger at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, from 14 February to 7 September 2014
In collaboration with le Fresnoy, Studio national des arts contemporains.
Nouvelles histoires de fantômes is a poignant installation conceived by Georges Didi-Huberman and Arno Gisinger after the legendary Atlas Mnemosyne by early 20th century art historian Aby Warburg.
The result is certainly not an exhibition, nor an artwork in the traditional sense, but a presentation – in a previously nonexistent form – of an incomparable meditation on the way in which photography and cinema have each prolonged past masterpieces that are testaments to humanity.
Georges Didi-Huberman began his methodical reflection on art over thirty years ago, and, through its examination of history, the whole of his work has deepened our psychical and ethical relationship to images. Together with the artist Arno Gisinger, they present a new evolution of the spectacular installation that they devised for Le Fresnoy in 2012 and invite visitors of Palais de Tokyo to dive into the heart of scenes that haunt our gaze.
