Live and work in Paris, France.

daniauxpigotSince 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. We are currently working in Alaska on land art projects dealing with time, archaeology, geology and climate change.
Our work was shown in leading institutions: Musée du Jeu de Paume in Paris in 2014, Venice Biennial of Architecture in Italy in 2014, Barents Spektakel in 2013 in Norway, Ultima Festival, at Oslo Opera in 2011, Palais de Tokyo in Paris in 2011, Qui Vive International Biennial in Moscow in 2010 and Dashanzi Art Festival in Beijing in 2004. We were laureates of a Villa Medici hors-les-murs residency in 2003, fellows at the Cité Siam in Bangkok in 2005, at Dar Batha in Fez, Morocco in 2013 and at Akademie Schloss Solitude, Germany in 2015 and 2016. We were finalists of the COAL Prize Art and Environment in 2010.
We run the Essays collection of Éditions Supernova, which we founded with Stéphanie Boubli in 2014.
