Inside the Parisian Palais de Tokyo, Tape Paris, a part of an extensive group exhibition titled "Inside”, has been presented by Vienna-based design collective Numen/For Use. Transforming tapes to build interior movements with the retaining shape, creating a symphony of circulation within the suspended veins.
While we exploring the experience of interior space through the matrix of surface, we are welcome to move along the translucent tunnels and feel the sense of organic reaction around us.
Their main idea was to transform the whole building into a convulsive mind/body organism whose slippery inner limits a motivated explorer has yet to trace and confront. The stretched biomorphic skin of Tape Paris is marking the entry point to the whole experience, being a literal incarnation of an inner-directed, regressive environment - the sense of descent into the primordial always lingering around its openings.
