Pierre Huyghe

I remember coming across Pierre Huyghe’s “Les Grands Ensembles” at the Guggenheim years ago, and watching it for the duration of the video (a feat for me). The piece shows two buildings in a desolate landscape “communicating” with one another. Meant to represent the failed (and stark) housing projects of the 1970s in France, the buildings tell stories to one another that feels almost alien. I love it. Mesmerized forever. Obsessed.

  1. Loved this Pierre Huyghe video. I think it was @Guggenheim during the Matthew Barney Cremaster Cycle- talk about epic
