Patrick Tresset is a London based artist. His art practices follow two main path, on one hand Tresset presents theatrical installations in which robotic agents are actors, these installations are often evocations of humanness. Tresset crafts the computational systems driving the robots so that their behaviour can be perceived as artistic, expressive and obsessive. These systems are influenced by research into human behaviour, more specifically how humans make marks, how humans depict other humans, how humans perceive artworks and how humans relate to robots. On the other hand Tresset also uses robots and computational systems to produce series of drawings, paintings and videos.
Patrick’s work has been internationally exhibited in solo and group shows, in association with major museums and institutions such as The Pompidou Center (Paris), Tate Modern (London), Museum of Israel (Jerusalem), Prada Foundation (Milan), Victoria & Albert Museum (London), Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (Seoul), Bozar (Brussels),Laznia Center (Gdansk) and other events such as Art Brussels, Ars Electronica, Update_5, London Art Fair, Kinetica Art Fair and Istanbul Biennial.
