Pierre Huyghe

£25.00

This publication follows the course of the development of Huyghe’s practice in the last ten years. A conversation between Hans Ulrich Obrist, Artist Director of the Serpentine Galleries, and an essay by art historian Dorothea von Hantelmann, offer a comprehensive discussion of this period. Drawings, diagrams, plans, text and reference images, photographs and film stills chart the processof developing works, both realised and unrealised, as well as acting as markers, recording the experience of encountering them.

Seminal projects are focused on, along with other works that were developed simultaneously. The first of these, THE HOST AND THE CLOUD (2009–2010), took place in a former museum in Paris; UNTILLED (2012), which was developed during documenta (13) in Kassel, could be found in the composting area of a public park, and AFTER ALIFE AHEAD (2017) was conceived in a disused ice rink as part of Skulptur Projekte Münster. Huyghe’s most recent work, UUMWELT (2018), which was installed first at the Serpentine Galleries in London, and later at Luma Arles, is the culmination of a ground-breaking approach to exhibitions.
