THIS COVERS HIS CONCERNS, METHODS, MATERIALS, MODES OF PRESENTATION, AND OTHER RELEVANT EXAMPLES OF HIS WORK.
Pierre Huyghe explores the territory of reality and fiction, creating a site of convergence for interpretation, representation, and transformation. His work incorporates film, objects, and staged events such as celebrations, puppet shows, and musicals to address how we construct and translate experience. Although the final artwork often takes the form of a projected image, Huyghe's primary interest lies in the production of situations

Still from 'The drummer and the dancer'
My Work is based on performance, and this is a still from an improvised performance.
By looking at the relationship between the Art and the Artist, I am trying to gain a greater understanding of relationships.

My work is based on constructions in childhood toys, to make visual images such as figures or faces. The work has developed over the year from something originally very different, the concept between contemporary art and traditional - and how we choose to express ourselves so differently. Through experimentation and exploration (a key factor to my work) it began to change. I began to look at creating art (specifically portraits) without paint. As this is my final year of fine art practice, I wanted to push the boundaries of my work beyond my norm. So I began to use Hamabeads. I then developed the idea so that I could use any number of childhood toys ranging from Lego, to a plain cardboard box.
As my work has primarily been self analytical and narrative based, I decided to continue this, but with a universal undertone to it.
The hamabeads portraits are pieces of work in their own right, but I decided to push the concept of 'creating something' further. And as any student can vouch, facebook is a big part of our lives. For that reason, I extended these images to the virtual world, for strangers to look at, and for their persona's to grow. The characters 'Gertrude, Cecil, Sandy-Sue and Jeremy' all now have story boards (a lot like a soap opera) and the pieces are interactive, if you speak to them, they will communicate back. They have each developed their own personalities, and they live by them, as we do. They even have their own circle of friends, who talk to them as if they are real people.
At the moment, I am experimenting with these boundaries. I will update soon.
Cheers for reading.

Hi - these pages should be used to build a catalogue of profiles. Try and make them focused to the final work you are proposing to make for the degree show in may, but you can talk generally about our interests as an artist. Other blogs and links you have can be included as well as anything you think is interesting and relevant to you. This link COULD be sent directly to local or even not so local organisations, so make an effort and make it interesting.
Any info about meetings regarding the degree show will be posted HERE!
If anybody has any interesting links they want to share with us that will be brill - Just post them on your profile. I've started with a few organisations and sites that might be of interest to some of you, and who might very well be interested in you. have a look, gander, browse, to see whats goin down.
Peace and Love
