ONLINE EXHIBITION #1 | Pierre Bismuth

ONLINE EXHIBITION #1 | Pierre Bismuth

Born 1963 in Paris, lives and works in Brussels.

The artist employs artistic practice as a tool for examining our perception of reality as well as our relation to culture and its productions. The underlying aim of his works is always the same - to destabilize pre-established codes of perception and to push the viewer to become critical and incredulous even when presented with cultural objects whose meaning appears self-evident. Pierre Bismuth uses the same method in manipulating diverse materials, he creates unexpected shifts in the everyday meaning of things in order to provoke a change in perceptual habits, thus opening the space for an understanding of the world beyond its constructed meaning. The immediate accessibility of the materials employed by the artist proves to be a kind of decoy or lure, which eventually leads the spectator to distance him or herself from the usual network of significations and implications in which they are embedded. In this sense Pierre Bismuth never tries to add new meanings to the objects that he manipulates, but aims simply to neutralize their initial meaning and thereby delay the act of understanding.
