Pierre Bismuth

French artist Pierre Bismuth shared an Academy Award with his co-writers, Michel Gondry and Charlie Kaufman, for Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind in 2005. He was recently in Perth to launch an exhibition of three works, in which Bismuth deploys humour to disorientate the viewers’ understanding of cultural forms like print media and film.

Cut & Paste caught up with him at the Fremantle Arts Centre to dicuss his works and the ever changing world of contemporary art.
