Installations and objects, experimental actions and more immaterial artistic gestures

Presentation

“Since we met in 2001, our joint work bears the dual hallmark of experimentation and performance. Our pieces bring together various media, associating elements from opposite ranges, with a taste for connections between Sci-Fi and documentary forms, high-tech engineering and fantasy tales, heavyweight materials and fleeting sensations. Starting with installations and objects, our work soon included experimental actions and more immaterial artistic gestures. Videos, sound art, music, poetry, olfactive research, virtual works bordering the digital arts have formed, over the past years, a cycle of works dealing with climate change, economic, political and geo-strategic issues, urban development and food management.”
