Pierre Huyghe

Most recently, his projects include an untitled piece for the Documenta 13 in Kassel, Germany; Amidst Karlsaue Park’s compost heap—an area detached from museums and cultural institutions and not intended to be seen—Huyghe installed common park objects from different moments in art history, as well as the Documenta in years past, from one of Joseph Beuys’s uprooted oaks to Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster’s pink bench.
Published to accompany a major exhibition of Huyghe’s work opening at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art in November 2014, this book offers the first comprehensive overview of the artist’s career. The structure of the book brings to light Huyghe’s creative process, with each step in the creation of featured projects amply illustrated with photographs, drawings, and preparatory sketches.
