9780262017800: Parallel Presents: The Art of Pierre Huyghe (MIT Press)

Over the past two decades, French artist Pierre Huyghe has produced an extraordinary body of work in constant dialogue with temporality. Investigating the possibility of a hypothetical mode of timekeeping -- "parallel presents" -- Huyghe has researched the architecture of the incomplete, directed a puppet opera, founded a temporary school, established a pirate television station, staged celebrations, scripted scenarios, and journeyed to Antarctica in search of a mythological penguin. In this first book-length art historical examination of Huyghe and his work, Amelia Barikin traces the artist's continual negotiation with the time codes of contemporary society. Barikin finds in Huyghe's projects an alternate way of thinking about history -- a "topological historicity" that deprograms (or reprograms) temporal formats. Barikin offers pioneering analyses of Huyghe's lesser-known early works as well as sustained readings of later, critically acclaimed projects, including No Ghost Just a Shell (2000), L'Expédition scintillante (2002), and A Journey That Wasn't (2005). She emphasizes Huyghe's concepts of "freed time" and "the open present," in which anything might happen.

Bringing together an eclectic array of subjects and characters -- from moon walking to situationist practices, from Snow White to Gilles Deleuze -- Parallel Presents offers a highly original account of the driving forces behind Huyghe's work.

About the Author:

Amelia Barikin is an Australian writer and curator.

Review:

"In Parallel Presents, Barikin skilfully negotiates the curious entanglements of Huyghe's positioning, rarely fixed yet frequently fascinating. The volume is elegantly designed, synthesizes a wealth of critical and historical material, and features a generous selection of color images."(Martin Patrick, Afterimage 41.2, 2013.)

"Barikin has successfully written a rich, generous text that engages with Huyghe's practice in such a way that interest in it will only be further increased. We commend, in particular, its open engagement with ideas that will no doubt generate more ideas." --Susan Best and Helen Ennis, AAANZ Best Book Prize 2013

"With Parallel Presents: The Art of Pierre Huyghe, Amelia Barikin has given us a superb reading of a leading contemporary French artist who is working through, and engaging with, his intellectual and social milieu. She not only served her subject well but, in pursuing the improbable poetics of Huyghe, also brilliantly illuminates her own cultural and intellectual setting." (Julie Ewington, Art Monthly Australia)

"Using a variety of contemporary thinkers and artists, from Ricoeur to Rancière, from Deleuze to Robert Smithson, and benefiting from privileged access to the artist, his friends, and contemporaries, Barikin elucidates this complex contemporary artist's experiments to do with time and space, reality, and fiction that suggest an alternative pattern to contemporary historiography." Nina Parish (French Studies 68.3 2014)

There is little doubt that Pierre Huyghe is one of the most important artists of the last twenty years. In this first monograph devoted to the artist, Amelia Barikin provides a striking road map through a dense oeuvre, showing Huyghe to be involved in a thorough-going reconsideration -- a reinvention -- of the problem of art's relationship to time.

(George Baker, University of California, Los Angeles; author of The Artwork Caught by the Tail)

An elegant and readable road-map of the complex creative territory that is Pierre Huyghe. This no mean feat, as Amelia Barikin's subject belongs to a generation of artists whose work is protean to the extreme. As such, Parallel Presents is indispensable not only for our understanding of Huyghe, but also for the ideas and other artists on today's cutting-edge.

(Simon Morley, editor of The Sublime)

Barikin skillfully negotiates the curious entanglements of Huyghe's positioning, rarely fixed yet frequently fascinating.

(Martin Patrick Afterimage)
