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.

In 2014, Ill-Studio produced this sculpture showcasing the wheel of a Yamaha BWs 50 (arguably one of the most popular icon of 90's teenage culture) covered with gold foil. BWs stands as an allegory to cultural artifacts from past civilisations.
Conceived and curated as a partnership between Ill-Studio and 2ManyDjs, Untold Eivissa is an exhibition taking the form of a trip back to the golden years of Ibiza. It features a rare selection of magazines and original party posters, a series of photographs, posters and videos made for the occasion. A flexi disc about the early days of Balearic Club Culture between 1981 and 1987 was produced to compliment the exhibition.

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.
