Pierre Huyghe Art Basel Parcours

Location: Garden of the Allgemeine Lesegesellschaft Münsterpl. 8

Marian Goodman Gallery is pleased to present “Exomind (Deep Water),” a recent work by Pierre Huyghe at this year’s Art Basel Parcours section at the Allgemeine Lesegesellschaft garden in Basel.

A beehive grows on the head of a female figure, pollinating the surroundings.

Pierre Huyghe's exhibitions are complex systems in which interdependent agents, biotic and abiotic, real and symbolic are self-organizing, co-evolve in a dynamic and unstable mesh.

In Documenta 13, Huyghe presented Untilled (2011-2012), a live construct ecosystem. Within it, lying in the mud of a compost, a statue with the head covered by a beehive was a part of a wider set of operations occurring without control and under their own conditions. 

In Exomind (2017), Huyghe’s latest project, among the living entities inhabiting a sandy hill in the forest of Dazaifu, Japan, the beehive covering the head of a new female statue, as an exo-mind in endless formation, is growing by pollinating other living symbols. It constantly modifies itself in this transitory, porous, entangled environment in permanent variations.
