Soulwax transient program for drums and machinery is an installation imagined by Soulwax and Ill-Studio, built for performance and operated by seven musicians. The mono and polyphony frequency instruments used for this performance are all positioned on a giant rug, representing the electronic schematic of the installation.
Between 2016 and 2018, this installation travelled around Europe, America and Asia, from Coachella in Palm Springs
to Royal Festival Hall in London.

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.

Ill-Studio and long time collaborator Christophe Lemaire teamed up to create a series of prints in tribute to the Neue Deutsche Welle musical movement and its most iconic bands such as D.A.F. and Liaisons Dangereuses for Lemaire’s Spring-Summer 2017 collection.
