Pierre Bismuth

Pierre Bismuth’s videos have parodied Hollywood productions before, but will he stop now that he has his own Oscar? Bismuth won Best Original Screenplay for his collaboration with Michel Gondry and Charlie Kaufman on Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. He and Gondry first teamed up a decade ago for a French music video, and it was Bismuth who proposed to Gondry a project based on memory erasure. Bismuth’s work, which includes drawings, collages, and musical compositions in addition to video projections, has always wittily played with language and undertaken deadpan manipulations of popular culture, and this collection provides the full range of the French artist’s output, including his new Unfolded Origami series. Conceptual art theorist Alexander Alberro adds a significant scholarly essay.
