Pierre Huyghe Pond Society
In light of recent developments concerning the coronavirus (COVID-19), events, exhibitions and talks are subject to change.
Pierre Huyghe’s first solo exhibition in China is on view at Pond Society, in collaboration with the New Century Art Foundation (NCAF).
The exhibition will feature two works by Pierre Huyghe that exemplify the artist's complex methodology: Cambrian Explosion 15 and A Way in Untilled. Cambrian Explosion 15 (2017-18) belongs to a series of live marine ecosystems in glass tanks, a body of work that Huyghe began in 2010.
Huyghe's film work A Way in Untilled (2012) transports the viewer to Huyghe’s Untilled (2012), which premiered at the 2012 edition of Documenta in Kassel, Germany. A Way in Untilled presents several levels of the ecosystem. As with Cambrian Explosion 15, the inclusion of plants and animals in this work blurs the lines between subject and object, producing a condition that the artist has described as 'undetermined'.
