Pierre Huyghe in conversation with Hans Ulrich Obrist
Serpentine Galleries and Artsy presented a conversation with Pierre Huyghe and Hans Ulrich Obrist, Artistic Director, Serpentine Galleries to discuss Pierre Huyghe's exhibition where the gallery has become a porous and contingent environment, housing different forms of cognition, emerging intelligence, biological reproduction and instinctual behaviours.
Born in Paris in 1962 and based in New York, Huyghe works on situations that are often based on speculative models.
The environments he creates are complex systems in which interdependent agents, biotic and abiotic, real and symbolic are self-organising, co-evolving in a dynamic and unstable mesh. Crucially, the different modes of existence and intelligence involved are often imperceptible to the visitors who encounter them.
This new exhibition for the Serpentine follows Huyghe’s recent acclaimed ones, including After ALife Ahead for Skulptur Projekte Münster, 2017; Untilled at Documenta 13, 2012; and The Host and the Cloud in 2010.
