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.

to Royal Festival Hall in London.

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.
