PIERRE HUYGHE

Pierre Huyghe was born in 1962 in Paris, where he lives and works. Huyghe graduated from the ?‰cole Nationale Sup?©rieure des Arts D?©coratifs in 1985. In his work in film, video, sound and animation, Huyghe pulls at narrative structures, looking at reality and fiction, history and memory, offering different readings and reinterpretations of manifold references from Disney animations and Hollywood films, to historical events. He has had numerous solo exhibitions at international venues including Magasin, Grenoble, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; Kunsthaus Bregenz, Austria; Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago and the Mus?©e d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris. In 2001, Huyghe represented France at the Venice Biennale and won the Special Jury Award. Among other awards, in 2002 he received the Hugo Boss Prize, and this year won the prize for the best French artist from Beaux-Arts Magazine.
