Pierre Huyghe: Chimeras

EMMA - Espoo Museum of Modern Art, Espoo

  • 7.6.2023–22.10.2023


Pierre Huyghe (b. 1962) is an artist who has been redefining the format of exhibition and artistic expression over three decades. His new exhibition, entitled Chimeras, brings together five works from the last decade, all manifestations of another subjectivity, non-human and inhuman, that keeps transforming itself. The exhibition consists of different intelligent life forms, biological, technological that learn and evolve in uncertain states. The title of the exhibition, Chimeras, refers to organisms composed of cells with more than one distinct genotype. Pierre Huyghe uses Chimeras as a concept to describe non-binary existence.

The exhibition was formed around the aquarium Abyssal Plain accessioned to the Saastamoinen Foundation Art Collection. Pierre Huyghe is the sixth artist in the InCollection series, in which a new artwork is commissioned each year from a visionary contemporary artist for the foundation's collection. Chimeras is curated by EMMAs former Chief Curator Arja Miller and Creator Projects Director, Simon Friese, in collaboration with Anne Stenne, Curator at Pierre Huyghe Studio.

The exhibition is supported by Hauser & Wirth.
