Our Insiders' Article

Takis

Born in Athens in 1925, Takis relocated to Paris when he was 25, and quickly integrated all forms of magnetism and energy into his art. In an unusual homage, the Palais de Tokyo is exhibiting some of his more or less big works to celebrate his 90th year. Throughout his career, Takis knew to incorporate into his works light, music, and movement, often in a magnetic framework. The exhibition is therefore an interesting way to plunge into the world of this artist who does not hesitate to play with all the senses to discover his universe.

Musical

After having participated in an interactive discovery of a magnetic work with the help of a compass, which has actually “lost north,” you will enter a space exhibiting “Musical,” a work that combines magnetism and music. The melody is not exactly the most harmonious or structured, but the sounds emitted are nonetheless pleasant. Take the time to sit on the bleachers in front of the piece. Other vertical luminous pieces are exhibited along the rest of this musical installation as well.

Magnetic Fields

Magnetic works can be found all throughout the exhibition. One of them is very interactive as each visitor can throw metallic nails against magnetized panels. One section of the exhibition, located behind the immense gong, is not recommended for children as it contains several sexually explicit elements.

Parisianist Fun Fact: You have perhaps noticed similar light installations at the start of the Esplanade de la Défense, the long promenade located in the Parisian business district. This is also a piece by Takis.

Conclusion

If this exhibition had been isolated in a different location, there would not be much to say about it, but because it is located in the Palais de Tokyo, alongside other exhibitions like “Le Bord des Mondes” in the basement, the Takis exhibition is also worth a short visit. Someone uncultured in modern art will sure find oneself intimidated by these magnetic sculptures, but they are however very original and at least somewhat curious. The two exhibits together are therefore must-sees.
