Pierre Huyghe | “Anlee”

EXCLUSIVE: Pierre Huyghe’s videos One Million Kingdoms (2001) and Two Minutes Out of Time (2000), part of the collaborative project No Ghost Just a Shell (1999-2003) with Philippe Parreno.

Pierre Huyghe’s films, installations, and public events range from a small-town parade to a puppet theater, from a model amusement park to a wildlife expedition in Antarctica. Revealing the experience of fiction to be as palpable as anything in daily life, Huyghe’s playful work often addresses complex social topics such as the yearning for utopia, the lure of spectacle in mass media, and the capacity of cinema to shape memory.
