Born in Ivry-sur-Seine in 1983, lives in Paris.
Benoît Piéron creates moments, installations and objects. He is interested in the sensuality of plants, the borders of the body and the temporality of waiting rooms. He practices patchwork, existential gardening and draws wallpapers. Having always lived with a pet disease, the hospital world is his ecosystem. From time to time, he gives knitted workshops around herbalism and validation. Recently, he has encapsulated gardens throughout the programming of Crédac, Ivry-sur-Seine, particularly in connection with the exhibition devoted to Derek Jarman in the fall of 2021. For the past few months, he has been questioning the food of unicorns, the place of orgasm in the hospital and lethal flora.
