Seclusion and Refuge

The show we saw at Palais de Tokyo was called Chasing Napoleon, a group exhibition featuring 18 artists. I particularly liked this room (pictured - that's my friend Ben walking through), a huge, empty, arc-shaped room with a barn by Robert Kusmirowski, and a sound installation of birds chirping. There was also a fantastic slide-show, consisting of 33,000 images flipped through at random: the artist (Dieter Roth) photographed every house in Reykjavik between 1973 and 1975, and again between 1990 and 1993.
