Art:21 - Pierre Huyghe

art:21

2007

Pierre Huyghe's films, installations, and public events range from a small-town parade to a puppet theater, from a model amusement park to a wildlife expedition in Antarctica. Revealing the experience of fiction to be as palpable as anything in daily life, Huyghe's playful work often addresses complex social topics such as the yearning for utopia, the lure of spectacle in mass media, and the capacity of cinema to shape memory.

Pierre Huyghe is featured in the Season 4 episode “Romance” of the Art21 series “Art in the Twenty-First Century”.
