Description

French conceptual artist Pierre Huyghe (b. 1962) is known for experimental and complex works that employ a variety of media, including photography, film, drawing, sculpture, music, and even public happenings and living organisms. His thought-provoking and innovative pieces have been presented internationally to great acclaim over the past 20 years. This book presents Huyghe's site-specific installation for the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Roof Garden, and contextualizes this work within his career. The creatively designed publication includes striking full-color images of a number of Huyghe's celebrated works as well as a fold-out poster cover of the installation. An interview with Huyghe by Sheena Wagstaff allows this articulate artist to explain his work directly to the reader. An essential companion to the must-see Roof Garden installation, this book provides a focused study of one of today's most fascinating contemporary artists.show more
