ABOUT

Between 2011 and 2017 Pedro Huet has studied Multimedia-Fine Arts, at Faculdade de Belas Artes da Universidade do Porto (FBAUP), made an Erasmus exchange at Academy of Fine Arts Vienna and a MA in Fine Arts, in LUCA School of Arts, Brussels.
 
Pedro Huet’s works have been floating between the photographic medium and the image in movement. In common, those works have the focus on the environments where they are created.
The processes that determine the concept of the creative line of Pedro are intimately connected to literature – philosophy, politics, science fiction or mythology are among recurring references – and then come the images that these readings provide. They have been accompanied by highly referential questions, playing with the same logic as a treasure map, where the clues must be followed, especially in his recent years.
The whole result of the exploration of these processes involves an extensive analysis of images, from the production modes, to the sharing processes and their geology and semiotics. All his themes have allowed the artist to fantasize about speeches, movements and plot tensions in the construction of other narratives.
In his practice, the politic of images and the metaphors of politics have come to assume a relative preponderance, leading him to the questions of the nonsense or absurdity of images in the beginnings of political and power institutions, and taking him, at the same time, to an attempt to insert these reflections and counter-absurdities into the body of his work.
