Pierre Clement, (b. 1981 in Tarbes, FR), graduated with a MFA from ESA des Pyrénées in 2010.
Incorporating objects and simple industrial or traditional materials, French artist Pierre Clement’s sculptural configurations challenge an established logic of signs, tools, and systems. He reveals the many frameworks we have developed to manage the world, and exposes their absurdity. His work evolves and navigates in-between multiple fields of knowledge as ancient civilizations, conspiracy theories, post-human prophecies, geo-politics, all mixed up with a certain dose of high-tech aesthetics. All these assemblages and 2D or 3D experiments properly adresses the exo-culture we are all waiting for.
It was all written, all predicted, anticipated. It was planned since always, individually, together, globally, at every scale, everywhere, forever. We always knew it, we felt it, it could not be stopped. It was an illusion, a dream, a nightmare, it was a prophecy, it was just written since always. It was in front of us, written on the summits, on the waves, on the stars, it was written in our eyes. It was not buried. It was not light years away, it was light years away. It was deeper, it was inside, you could breath it, you could drink it, since always. It was an effect, it was a cause, a cycle, a language, it was a sign. It was too late, it was us, since always, since it starts, forever.
