Grand Palais Art Scan Update Available Now
Grand Palais Art Scan
The original Grand Palais Art Scan was developed for the exhibition of Bill Viola, renowned motion artist. The application combined image recognition with the artist’s own digital content. Images could be viewed in the physical catalogue, or scanned with the free app to create an effect of a moving image.
Niki de Saint Phalle
Now, for the exhibition of Niki de Saint Phalle, the Grand Palais offers visitors the exhibition catalog, featuring over 20 video clips with numerous archive documents including the short film “Daddy”, a largely autobiographical film released in 1973 and filmed in collaboration with Peter Whitehead. Born in 1930 into an aristocratic family with whom she always kept her distance, Niki de Saint Phalle had an early interest in the role of women as a subject of inspiration and reflection on the society that surrounded them, but also on their own condition. Committed artist, she explores through hersculptures and paintings the different facets of femininity, free from prejudice, and whose monumental “Nanas” with their colorful curves, are only one of many events. As always, the app also allows you to interact with the catalog of the exhibition Bill Viola.
