Pierre Huyghe

Pierre Huyghe was born in 1962 in Paris. He lives and works between Paris and New York. His installations, videos, happenings, and sculptural objects integrate loosely structured events with room for spontaneous intervention, seeking to reinvent rituals of social engagement. His ethereal works blur fact and fiction to consider the ways in which reality can be molded through a seemingly controlled scenario. Huyghe employs an anthropological outlook, seeking to understand the atmosphere of controlled environments that may mutate by way of the elements involved. His video works consider expectations of the museum space and the unrealistic demands of an aesthetic utopia. Channeling spectacle and seeking to uncover the impact it has on contemporary values, Huyghe uses his art practice to reveal the metabolic potential of art making.
