PIERRE HUYGHE

The Espace Louis Vuitton Venezia is pleased to announce the opening of its new exhibition paying tribute to French artist Pierre Huyghe. As part of the 57th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia, this presentation has been produced in the framework of the Fondation Louis Vuitton’s “Hors-les-murs” program. This program showcases previously unseen holdings of the Fondation’s collection at the Espaces Culturels Louis Vuitton in Tokyo, Munich, Beijing and Venice, thus realizing the Fondation’s aim to mount international projects and make them accessible to a broader public. Since the late 1980s, Pierre Huyghe has pursued a very personal, multi-disciplinary and hybrid approach, which is constantly evolving, drawing in particular from the worlds of film, science fiction, music, science and archaeology. His unique style is expressed through film, installations, performances, photography and drawings. For Huyghe, exhibitions are an opportunity to experiment with new ways of presenting his work, in a constantly redefined “format”. His ambition is to allow the visitors to move away from an “anthropocentric” perspective and instead, reflect on their complex relationship with the invisible world – animal, vegetal and mineral – and an environment that is under threat, through a process of deconstructing and reconstructing visual and emotional perception. For the exhibition Pierre Huyghe, the Fondation Louis Vuitton presents three works from their collection, between narrative, fiction and fugitive memory: A Journey That Wasn’t (2005), Creature (2005-2011) and Silence Score(1997).
