DANIAUX PIGOT Extrémiste Hindou - Os, polyester, acier inoxydable et peinture carrosserie - 28 x 36 x 18 cm---daniaux-pigotARTJAWS

Since Magali Daniaux and Cédric Pigot met in 2001, their joint work bears the dual hallmark of experimentation and performance. 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, their 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 4 years, a cycle of works dealing with climate change, economic, political and geo-strategic issues, urban development and food management. They are currently working in Alaska on land art projects dealing with time, archaeology, geology and climate change. Their work was shown in leading institutions in France and in Europe: the Musée du Jeu de Paume in Paris in 2014, the Venice Biennial of Architecture in Italy in 2014, the Barents Spektakel in 2013 in Norway, the Ultima Festival, at Oslo Opera in 2011, the Palais de Tokyo in Paris in 2011, the Qui Vive International Biennial in Moscow in 2010. We were laureates of a Villa Medici hors-les-murs residency in 2003 (China), 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. We were finalists of the COAL Prize Art and Environment in 2010.
