Pierre Clément, born in 1981, lives and works in Paris
Pierre Clément's work spreads at the speed of the culture itself. His works are received even before we have acquired their knowledge. And for a good reason, the artist draws heavily on rumors, prophecies and anticipations spreading on the web. Each of his projects brings new devices, new designs, new visions where the evidence and transparency only serve silence and opacity. This volume puts into perspective the patterns of a freely available patent on the Google Patents platform. The abstraction of silkscreened shapes on Plexiglas ironically reflects the function of an object that is actually "filed".
