excentrique(s) by artist daniel buren for the 2012 annual monumenta at the grand palais in paris. buren's installation attempts to reconcile the human scale with the cavernous environs into which it has been inserted. it functions as a continuous canopy of twister-colored circular pavillions that cover the space's 13,500 square meter ground floor. the resulting supra-structure is calibrated to the minimum height required for the standard paris apartment, forming a low-lying enclosed space that drowns visitors in dampened color & light-laced shadow.
