Parabola explores the undercurrent relationship between modern standardized productions and Avant-Garde Art forms of the 20th century through their common postmodern lexicon.
The installation emphasizes the interchangeable nature of the vocabulary used by the "Industrial Civilization" of the 20th century and modernist artists such as John Cage, Hans Hofmann, Jean Dubuffet, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Andrei Tarkovsky or Claude Debussy.
Here, the titles of the artists' iconic work become mundane logotypes, diplayed on standardized contemporary artifacts.

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.
To celebrate their 25th anniversary, Carhartt WIP invited Ill-Studio to imagine and curate an exhibition about the past, present and future of the brand. Rather than using a chronological approach, Ill-Studio imagined a giant installation at St Agnes in Berlin, a brutalist church turned art gallery.
The exhibition was a mix of iconic pieces of the brand’s history together with curated cultural artefacts and new works made specially for the occasion.
