On Sunday the 30th of August at 2pm the opening of Pierre Huyghe‘s exhibition was held at the TarraWarra Museum of Art.You have till November 22nd to go and admire this exhibition.
Pierre Huyghe is, according to TarraWarra Museum, ”one of the most significant artists working today”. Born in Paris in 1962, he studied Arts in Paris and now lives in Santiago, Chile. He has held numerous exhibitions at leading institutions around the world including the Museo Tamayo Arte Contemporaneo in Mexico in 2012, the Centre Pompidou in Paris in 2013, the Metropolitan Museum Art (MoMA) in New York in 2015 and he even created a forest within the Sydney Opera House in 2008 for the Sydney Biennale!
Under the wild and wacky facade of Pierre Huyghe’s work, there is a strong thought process. To him, ”the museum is a collective memory, something that links us to culture and humanity” where he can create ”a garden, a seascape, a museumscape with its own symbolic ecosystem that becomes a physical and mental landscape.”
On Sunday, Mrs Myriam Boisbouvier-Wylie, Honorary Consul-General of France, was there to officially open the exhibition and to say a few words about Pierre Huyghes, his work, and the vitality of the presence of French artists in Australia.
