Pierre Huyghe, Photographer of the Human Mind
#Exhibitions

“I don’t want to show anybody anything, quite the opposite - I want to expose someone to something.” Pierre Huyghe, one of the most noteworthy artists in creating complex immersive ecosystems, translates his thought by transforming the Serpentine Gallery into a porous environment that gathers various forms of cognition, from emerging forms of intelligence to biological reproduction, all the way up to instinctual behaviour. Large LED screens, spread throughout the gallery, offer up the images that blossom in the mind of a person as soon as they begin to reflect on a specific situation. The reflection of the French artist which is transmitted through the use of various mediums, from film to video and even actions carried out in public spaces, is concentrated on cerebral activities and the structures of thought itself. It is in the same way that each thought is reconstructed by a neural web, images take form in the gallery, undergoing a constant process of reconstruction, infinitely modified by external factors, from light to temperature, or even the presence of hundreds of buzzing flies!
