Profile
Speaker

Pierre Bismuth is a contemporary artist, who lives and works in London and Brussels. Through efficient and often humorous gestures, Bismuth interrupts pre-established codes of reading the images and objects that pervade daily life – from Hollywood films, headline stories in newspapers to magazine clippings from gentlemen’s magazines. In 2005 he won the Best Original Screenplay Academy Award along with Michel Gondry and Charlie Kaufman for ‘Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind’. Bismuth and Gondry extended their collaboration with the video installation ‘All Seeing Eye, the Easy Teenage Version’ (2005) which was shown at the International Film Festival in Rotterdam with the courtesy of Lisson Gallery (London) and Cosmic Gallery (Paris). His work has been widely exhibited in Europe, in galleries such as Team Gallery (New York), Jan Mot (Brussels), Bugada Cargnel (Paris) and Christine Konig (Vienna).
