Benoît Piéron creates moments, installations and objects. His work untangles the sensuality of plants, the borders of the body and the temporality of waiting rooms. From cosmogonic cabins and patchwork tents, to hand drawn wallpapers and metabolised gardens, Pieron’s practice is an art of survival. Living with and through various illnesses, his work deals with the uncertainty of life, death and immunity.
His practice draws on surrounding hospitals and medical environments for materials, reappropriating them to unlock other enchanting worlds free of binaries and boundaries.
For his Chisenhale commission, Piéron will produce a new body of work that explores illness and hallucination as spaces of potential and abundance. Piéron’s first artist publication will be developed alongside the commission.
