PALMS. Visions of the good life. A dream, a hope, an escape from everyday life. With candles and ashtrays in the shape of palms or a glitter palm in an ice-cream sundae, we take a bit of it home—an admission that we dream a dream of great happiness, combined with a genial petty bourgeois mentality.

Daniel Buren

Two Works for Recklinghausen
Daniel Buren is one of France's most renowned contemporary artists. His main focus since the 1980s has been on the architecture of spaces where he works, querying, defining and transforming. As part of the Ruhrfestspiele (Ruhr Festival), he will show off the entrance hall of Recklinghausen's Festspielhaus by attaching pieces of coloured film to the large glass facade. The facade of the Kunsthalle Recklinghausen will also be transformed using coloured film: the 28 panes of glass will then be illuminated from within. Both locations will be transformed and new experience spaces will be created.
