Pierre Huyghe was born in Paris in 1962. Huyghe’s works often present themselves as complex systems characterized by a wide range of life forms, inanimate things and technologies. His constructed organisms combine not only biological, technological and fictional elements, they also produce an immersive, constantly changing environment, in which humans, animals and non-beings learn, evolve and grow.
Recent solo exhibitions include “UUmwelt” at the Serpentine Gallery, London, UK (2018); “After ALife Ahead” at Skulptur Projekte Münster, Germany (2017); “The Roof Garden” Commission at the Metropolitan Museum, New York (2015), among others. In 2012 -2014, a major retrospective of Huyghe’s work travelled from the Centre Pompidou, Paris to the Ludwig Museum, Cologne, Germany and to Los Angeles County Museum of Art, California, USA.
