Anywhere out of the world

/ Philippe Parreno /

Anywhere out of the World is an evolving project which began in 1999 when Pierre Huyghe and Philippe Parreno bought the rights to the manga character, Ann Lee, from a Japanese agency. In this version, the composite character, a fragile little girl, tells her story. “I was designed to fit into any story […] I belong to whoever can fill me with an imaginary life…”. According to the artist “Ann Lee is a tale: she reminds us that we can create our own lives, leave the world of meaning and inhabit the world of signs which haven’t yet been represented”.
