Initially made for Ill-Studio’s first solo exhibition in Paris, this sculpture made of plaster represents a pair of Nike TN. The Nike TN is a very popular shoe of the French youth culture from the 2000s, and it is here presented as seen by future archaeologists finding a vestige of our modern civilisation.
Ill-Studio conceptualized an installation at the Museum of Modern Art in Paris for the Pigalle Spring-Summer 2018 fashion show.
The installation explored the lifelong relationship between art and the anatomy of the human body and its performances. The scenography established visual parallels between the past, present and future of modernity, from the Roman Antiquity to the Avant-Garde era of the early 20th century and the Open-Source times we live in today.

As part of the Nike and Pigalle 2017 collaboration, Ill-Studio created a global campaign evoking the anatomy of the human body and its performances while establishing visual parallels between the past, present and future of modernity, from Renaissance to Futurism.
Ill-Studio commissioned photographer and artist Camille Vivier alongside French painter Jean Baptiste Boyer to create a variety of images alternating between painting and photography.

“Playmaker“ is a work by Ill-Studio, produced with the help of Nike, establishing a parallel between the work of French artist Henry Matisse and the free-role of football’s attacking midfielders being central pivots between offensive and defensive players (Post-Impressionism and Modernism) through their superior vision, technical skills, control and creativity.
As part of the Nike and Pigalle Spring-Summer 2017 collaboration, Ill-Studio conceived and designed original modules used for various installations. The designs establish a parallel between antique architecture and modernist Italian designers such as Carlo Scarpa, Gio Ponti and Aldo Rossi.
