Pierre Huyghe is a French artist who works in a variety of media from films and sculptures to public interventions and living systems. Huyghe, born in Paris, currently lives and works in Santiago, Chile. His work is internationally recognized and has been showcased in various exhibitions around the world. Huyghe’s works often present themselves as complex systems characterized by a wide range of life forms, inanimate things, and technologies.

Pierre Huyghe has since long questioned the relation between the human and the non-human, and conceives his works as speculative fiction from which emerge other modalities of the world. Fictions, to him, are “vehicles for accessing the possible or the impossible—what could be or could not be.”

Pierre Huyghe transforms Punta della Dogana into a dynamic, sensitive milieu perpetually evolving. The exhibition is a transitory state inhabited by human and non-human creatures and becomes the site of the formation of subjectivities that are constantly learning, changing, and hybridizing. Their memories are expanding with information captured from events, both perceptible and imperceptible, that permeate the exhibition.

For Pierre Huyghe, „the exhibition is an unpredictable ritual, where new possibilities are generated and coexist, without hierarchy or determinism. With Liminal, he invites us to follow other realities, to become strangers to ourselves, from a perspective other than human—inhuman“.

The exhibition has been produced in partnership with the Leeum Museum in Seoul.
