8:30am-9:30pm The Host and the Cloud, Pierre Huyghe

A former ethnographic museum outside of Paris provides the setting for French artist Pierre Huyghe’s investigation into the nature of ritual. Centering on three separate days—the Day of the Dead, Valentine’s Day, and May Day—over the course of a year, Huyghe captures a group of people circulating in the museum and being exposed to external influences, that they repeat and modify. In navigating through the galleries, as well as history, various proceedings come into focus: a legal trial, a dance, a hypnosis session, and a coronation, among others. These live situations are presented by professionals or reinterpreted by people wearing masks of light.
