French mechanic and sculptor Gilbert Peyre is profiled at this weird and wacky retrospective.

Returning to the Halle Saint-Pierre after his first monograph in 2000 and an installation in the current exhibition ‘Persona’ at Quai Branly – the surrealist-cum-robotics-expert takes us on a new journey. The exhibition is a complete immersion into this creepy make-believe world. Anyone anxious about wandering alone through these bizarre mechanical hybrid beings can relax: the brave engineers working on the exhibition provide a comforting human presence in the midst of an otherworldly dreamscape.
