Drift free pdf Artist and filmmaker, Philippe Parreno, who created the documentary, Zidane: A 21st Century Portrait, takes us in Drift on a unique voyage through London - a journey without the typical purposes of a journey, an artistic, psychogeographical path - part of a series of twelve books tied to the twelve lines of the London Underground, as Tfl celebrates 150 years of the Tube with Penguin. It is also available in a boxset. "Authors include the masterly John Lanchester, the children of Kids Company, comic John O'Farrell and social geographer Danny Dorling. Ranging from the polemical to the fantastical, the personal to the societal, they offer something for every taste. All experience the city as a cultural phenomenon and notice its nature and its people. Read individually they're delightful small reads, pulled together they offer a particular portrait of a global city". (Evening Standard). "Exquisitely diverse". (The Times). "Eclectic and broad-minded ...beautifully designed". (Tom Cox, Observer). "A fascinating collection with a wide range of styles and themes. The design qualities are excellent, as you might expect from Penguin with a consistent look and feel while allowing distinctive covers for each book. This is a very pleasing set of books". (A Common Reader blog). "The contrasts and transitions between books are as stirring as the books themselves...A multidimensional literary jigsaw". (Londonist). "A series of short, sharp, city-based vignettes - some personal, some political and some pictorial ...each inimitable author finds that our city is complicated but ultimately connected, full of wit, and just the right amount of grit". (Fabric Magazine). "A collection of beautiful books". (Grazia). Praise for Philippe Parreno's work: "Exceptional ...a small masterpiece". (Laura Cumming, Guardian). "One of France's hottest commodities. An artist with an almost chameleon-like approach to his medium, he can switch from film-maker to sculptor to storyteller to producer with the kind of dexterity that defies categorisation". (Guardian). Philippe Parreno is an Algerian artist and filmmaker who has had shows in major art galleries around the world and is considered the finest writer among artists by curators such as Hans Ulrich Obrist. Based in Paris, his documentary film Zidane: A 21st Century Portrait was released in 2006. He has exhibited in MoMA, Tate Modern and the Guggenheim, among others.
