Inside offers visitors a passage to the interior of the self, for which the exhibition space serves as a metaphor. This immense odyssey, both physical and psychological, invites us to walk through two floors of the Palais de Tokyo that have been transformed by artists in such a way that, from one installation to the next, we remain constantly immersed in the works, which lead us within ourselves — from our skin to our most intimate thoughts.

Made up only of transparent Scotch tape, this monumental installation by Numen/For Use (Sven Jonke, born in 1973, lives and works in Berlin; Christophe Katzler, born in 1968, lives and works in Vienna and Nikola Radeljkovic, born in 1971, lives and works in Zagreb) sprawls throughout the Palais de Tokyo’s entrance hall like a stretched canvas. The arms of this mass hanging off the building reveals glimpses of its organic innards. The structure invites visitors to walk towards the starting point of the exhibition, Inside. The bravest have the possibility of penetrating into this protective matrix and the journey through it constitutes the first stage in the exploration of an inner space that is physical as much as it is mental. Numen/ For Use is a collective that, since the 2000s, has also worked in the areas of scenography and the visual arts. Their experimental creations — not destined for any preconceived use — are usually immersive and always activated by the viewer.
