Dardex ( Quentin Destieu & Sylvain Huguet ) [FR]
The Dardex collective was founded in 2003 by Quentin Destieu and Sylvain Huguet, while they were both studying at the Ecole supérieure d’art d’Aix-en-Provence (France).Their collaborative works, involving various other artists and researchers, take the shape of installations and multimedia performances, making use of interactivity and gaming. Mainly "re-using" existing materials, their artistic strategy is based on the notion of appropriation and hacking. Their work questions a media-saturated world, exploring the borders and relations between technology and popular culture. Dardex are the founding members of M2F Creations and GAMERZ Festival. They regularly present their work in various exhibitions and festivals in France and abroad.
