Contemporary artists beginning with Guy Debord and Richard Long have returned again and again to the walking motif. Debord and his friends tracked the urban flows of Paris; Long trampled a path in the grass and snapped a picture of the result (A Line Made by Walking). Mapping is a way for us to locate ourselves in the world, physically, culturally, or psychologically; Debord produced maps like collages that traced the “psychogeoraphy” of Paris. Today, the convergence of global networks, online databases, and new tools for location-based mapping coincides with a resurgence of interest in walking as an art form.

Paris Network assembles photographs, sound samples, animations and texts to form a composite, layered image of the city, where the traces of places are confronted with the memories of people who have known them. It opens with a view of a map. As you move closer, you begin to lose your bearings. In each zone, you explore the city differently. Four entrances, four ways of looking, four structural devices. You will always have, even as you move around, a fragmentary view, evoking a vast, more complete “hors-champ”, which always seems out of reach. You enter as if you were breaking in.
