Since 2007, Pierre Leguillon stages the mobile moving-image project “La Promesse de l’Écran” (The Promise of the Screen) consisting of performative film screenings that explore the reproducibility of the dynamic and static image. All screenings have been adapted to various occasions and formats and have been shown at numerous institutions worldwide, most recently in 2018 in Kamoshika, Ōita, Japan and in 2017 at the Carpenter Center for Visual Arts, Harvard University, Cambridge. For Bremen, Pierre Leguillon develops the new program “Toasters and Mountains”, providing exciting and rare cinematic references to our current exhibition and his work to be seen as well as to art and film history, to design and TV advertising.
Pierre Leguillon (b. 1969 in Nogent-sur-Marne, France), lives in Brussels. His works, performances and projections have been subject to many monographic exhibitions, among others: 2019 Fondation d’entreprise Ricard, Paris; 2015 Wiels, Brussels, Dia Art Foundation, New York; 2014 Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh, as well as at Raven Row, London, Moderna Museet, Malmö, Musée du Louvre, Paris, and Artists Space, New York. Leguillon is awardee of Villa Médicis (2003) and teaches at HEAD Haute Ecole d’Art et de Design in Geneva.
