Pierre studied Fine Arts at the Rhode Island School of Design where his initial ideas about perception and the structure of narrative were planted. His two latest projects "clouds and raindrops" and "token of my affection" continue to explore these themes today with an emphasis on how individuals construct themselves and their worlds. Pierre has recently showed at AIM24 at the Bronx Museum of Art, The Studio in Armonk New York, The Knitting Factory in New York City and Real Artways in Hartford.

Throughout my work there is a consistent concern for the ways that perception constructs one's world. This consideration generates work that explores, on one hand, the physical structures we create to organize our world and, on the other, the psychological structures we imagine to understand and navigate our reality.

Token of my Affection, 2004. ( Images 1, 2 and 3 ) Shot during a recidency at the Taipei Artist Village in Taiwan this piece wants to show that gifts are often the roadmaps our our wishes and dreams for someone else, the structures that we would like them to wrap themselves around. In the video two characters go on an extended courtship laden with gift-giving. Each is engaged in a game wherein the objective is to change the other. ( token of my affection, widescreen video, 19 minutes. DVD edition of 10. 2004 ) - Clouds and Raindrops, 2003. ( Images 4, 5 and 6 ) In Clouds and Raindrops, two characters deathly afraid of the outside world create intricate stories from discarded objects they find every night on the city sidewalks. These stories slowly become their reality and fuel the cycle of their fearful nighttime journeys. ( clouds and raindrops, widescreen video, 19 minutes. DVD edition of 10, 2003. )
