Pierre Bennu is a multimedia artist working in paint, film, digital video, sculpture, sound art, puppetry and performance. Much of his work utilizes found materials, and seeks to map the landscape and language of joy, imagination and blackness. He relishes creating sacred items out of the overlooked, the unexpected and the discarded. How did you learn your craft?
I’ve been making and editing films since I was eight. I have been working with puppets and animation for just as long.
