Timekeeper, 2002, by Pierre Huyghe

Timekeeper is the history of the place where is been exhibited, a retrospective inside an exhibition.

“It’s very difficult to say what’s poetic in my work because it’s not something ‘mathematical’. It’s not a recipe. There’s no reason to have a recipe and say that I’m going to be poetic. I never do that. It’s rarely within the form itself. It’s more in the process. If there is something poetic, it’s poetic in the procedure . . . in the way things are made.” —Pierre Huyghe, 2007
