As part of the Paris museum's highly immersive Inside exhibition, the groundbreaking art collective Numen/For Use has transformed its cavernous entrance hall into a biomorphic tangle of web-like tunnels made entirely out of...wait for it, Scotch tape. At once reminiscent of an insect's nest, a network of nerves, and an alien lair, the artists describe the almost threatening nature of the work as "parasitical structure invading an arbitrary location." But fear not, the aptly named Tape Paris is actually surprisingly hospitable. That is, you are welcome to crawl around inside of it, suspended above a hall full of earthbound visitors.
Through January 11, 2015 at the Palais de Tokyo.
