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.

États Transitoires is a performance imagined by Ill-Studio in collaboration with the Paris National Opera. It is a visual exploration which highlights the correlation between body, spirit and architecture.
Ill-Studio invites the viewer to watch a ballet composed of multiple and variable personalities of the same individual, played by Axel Ibot, dancer at the Opéra de Paris. The film presents a return to the fundamentals of movement, simply subject to the laws of Newtonian physics before being governed by thought. It is a cinematic analysis of movement in space, free from choreographic pre-established ideas.
Here, the body no longer responds to the mind as a cultural or social event but as a mechanical translation within a well defined architectural environment.

Ill-Studio was given carte blanche by Danish brand Wood Wood to create images and videos for their Fall 2019 campaign. The resulting project was a series of photographs from various popular sports TV channels, creating abstract images about the idea of speed, movement and Ill-Studio’s fascination for popular culture in motion.
Video Home System is an installation made by Ill-Studio in 2012.
A subjective selection of VHS tapes, symbolizing Ill-Studio's personal golden era of skateboarding, are staked together in an unstable balance display. The piece was published in Neapolis book and exhibited during the Public Domaine Exhibition at la Gaité Lyrique in Paris.
Following projects with the likes of Martin Margiela and Karl Lagerfeld, Les Ateliers Ruby collaborated with Ill-Studio on a series of four high-end helmets. The bespoke pattern specifically created for the range echoes the works of ornamentation from late 1970s post-modernist designers and architects such as Shiro Kuramata or Robert Venturi.
