Philippe Parreno's multidisciplinary work draws from relational aesthetics, prioritizing the orchestration of social exchanges and situations over the creation of art objects. He is known for his "Marquee" installations of flashing light bulb arrangements, a version of which appeared over the Guggenheim's entrance for its 2008 "theanyspacewhatever" exhibit, as well as for his often-collaborative film and video works. In Zidane: A 21st-Century Portrait (2006), Parreno worked with artist Douglas Gordon and Scottish band Mogwai to create a mesmerizing, conceptual documentary of the French soccer star based on his movements in one game. June 8, 1968 (2009) is a lush re-staging of the day Robert Kennedy's body was transported by train from New York to Washington, DC, for burial, closely drawing from photojournalist Paul Fusco's images.
