Pierre Huyghe

Born in 1962, in Paris (France)

Lives and works in Paris (France)

Through the form of the exhibition, Pierre Huyghe constantly reinvents creative processes and modalities of presentation.

Since the early 1990s he has been exploring the boundary between the production of the real and of fiction. His work takes different forms such as live situations, films, objects, photographs and drawings. Huyghe examines many cultural, popular and scholarly themes such as science, science-fiction, literature, philosophy, archaeology, cinema, music, architecture and the work/life balance. His approach often involves collaborations with other artists as well as musicians, architects and scientists.
