The multimedia works that made him famous are videos projected in three dimensions, often on spherical surfaces, which accentuate the expressive charge of the subject, a face in the act of speaking, observing or shouting.

Great attention is given to the light. In 2013 he directed the videoclip of his long-time friend David Bowie 'Where are we now?'.
His works are present in collections such as: The Carnegie Museum of Art (Pittsburgh), Fondation Cartier pour l'Art Contemporain (Paris), the Hammer Museum (Los Angeles), the Honolulu Museum of Art, the Milwaukee Art Museum, the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, the Museum of Modern Art (New York City), the Tate Modern, and the Whitney Museum of American Art (New York City).

I kept coming upon this word 'imponderable'—for example, when reading about Newton's idea that gravity...

The biennial unites 60 artists from 28 countries and shows 300 works across three venues, the Musée d’art contemporain, the Sucrière, an old warehouse, and the modish Musée des...
