We are delighted to present Tatsuo Ikeda & Philippe Parreno: Field Phase at the gallery's Chelsea location, on-view by appointment only.

For over six decades, Japanese artist Tatsuo Ikeda has explored the human condition, probing the nature of individual experience within larger systems—the government, order of natural beings, universal hierarchies, celestial objects—that circulate, control, and attempt to dominate. Presented alongside Algerian born, French artist Philippe Parreno, a pioneer in perspectival intersections of real and imaginary and lastingly inchoate situations; together, these artists evoke logical aporias and paradoxes within a shared space that reflect a philosophy in which life is full of absurdity and contradiction that cannot be avoided.

Viewing by Appointment Only
