The second Hyundai Commission is open to the public at Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall. Philippe Parreno, the artist who is one of the most inventive figures, unveils the work that explores the border between fiction and reality; it examines and reinterprets the exhibition space and challenges our senses. Parreno brings into the Turbine Hall an experience that plays with time and space, guiding the public through a constantly changing play of moving elements, different light configurations and sound environments. The Turbine Hall, where monumental installation works have been exhibited since the opening of Tate Modern, is at the center of attention once again with the immersive experience by Philippe Parreno.

This is the second annual Hyundai Commission, a series of site-specific works created for the Turbine Hall by renowned international artists- part of the long-term partnership between Tate and Hyundai Motor, confirmed until 2025. Additionally, <Anywhen> is the first commission to respond to the challenge the Turbine Hall newly offers in the new position at the center of the museum, connecting the boiler house with the new switch house.

Even within a shared space and time, we may each be traveling in our own version of invisible time and space- like Philippe Parreno’s <Anywhen>, an exhibition that carries the idea of time and the essence of experiences. “We don’t to know what is actually happening here, but we believe that something is happening” implies the artist. What did Parreno want to tell with “Anywhen”? Why do people hardly leave his exhibition at the Turbine Hall? It may be because Parreno presented a constantly changing and developing “new future”.

This film will reveal the various elements such as light, sound, film, and movements of the <Anywhen> which created unique moments in the Turbine Hall. <HYUNDAI Meets Hyundai Commission: Philippe Parreno ‘Anywhen’> is brought to you as part of the ‘Hyundai Meets’ project, which has been established to share diverse works of art, exhibitions and insight of leading figures in the art scene with the audience across the globe. Through this seventh episode of the ‘Hyundai Meets’, meet the artist, the curators and take a closer look at the <Anywhen>.

When discussing the ‘Hyundai Commission 2016: Philippe Pareeno: Anywhen’ Parreno is often described as a ‘director’ or a ‘see-er’. Parreno gives an insight into his exploration in the different elements when outlining the multitude of different technologies used. For instance, a microphone is set up outside to pick up the sounds on the streets, weather units on the top of the roof monitor wind patterns and a machine records the changes of humidity and temperature. All of this data is integrated within a system which then uses the data to affect the work. During the six months of the exhibition, the sequence of events will continue to evolve into a pattern, informed by micro-organisms that will learn to react to and activate elements of the commission through a bio reactor. How the micro-organisms would react is however unpredictable as variables such as wind, temperature and sound could easily bring change.

Philippe Parreno is an artist with an ability to transform space. Regardless of where the space may be, by guiding the public through constantly changing stages of light, sound and moving elements, Parreno creates an immersive experience and draws people into the changes. The same has been presented through <Anywhen>. All elements in this exhibition have the possibility to happen, or to not happen, and to occur. Parreno describes this himself as “the possibility for art to occur”.

This diverse work was made in collaboration with renowned figures from different disciplines. Liam Gillick, the “Turner Prize” nominee, worked on <Another Day With Another Sun> with Parreno. Tino Seghal and Isabel Lewis made the dramaturgy, the sound has been designed by Nicolas Becker, Djengo Hartlap and Cyril Holtz. The bio reactor has been designed by Jean-Baptiste Boulé and Nicolas Desprat.

Actress, comedian and ventriloquist Nina Conti features in the film. Acoustic panels, a screen, a grid of speakers and a projector constantly perform in different positions, coming together from time to time to present a film featuring a stage ventriloquist, Nina Conti, and underwater creatures. As always a huge number of people contributed to the project and it can be said that this is the way Philippe Parreno works.

When asked what he would like visitors to feel from the Hyundai Commission 2016, Parreno said “I don’t expect anything from anybody. Things will happen and people may spend time. Maybe that is the only thing that I would like people to do, to spend time in a space.”

You can experience the Hyundai Commission 2016: Philippe Parreno from October 4, 2016 until April 2, 2017 at London's Tate Modern.
