Personnes by Christian Boltanski, Paris, France

Christian Boltanski’s piece fills the Grand Palais


Invited to fill the nave of Paris’ Grand Palais for this year’s Monumenta installation, French artist Christian Boltanski created Personnes (literally both ‘people’ and ‘nobodies’) - a social, religious and humanistic exploration of life, memory and the irreducible individuality of each and every human existence, overshadowed by the presence of death, the dehumanisation of the body, chance and destiny.
