Romain Tardy has been active in the visual art scene since 2008. Today his work is shown all over the world and most often conceived as poetic sensory experiences using light, video mapping, physical objects and sound. They question our relationship to technological and digital developments and their repercussions on society.
As well as his personal creations, he does creative and art direction, art consulting, and he is invited to do workshops and lectures in art schools and universities on a regular basis.
Julien Renault grew up outside of Paris and attended design schools both in France (Reims School of Art and Design) and in Switzerland (ECAL). Two different cultures and approaches to design which have partly shaped Renault’s own way of addressing his work. On one hand artistic, free and personal, on the other hand systemic, objective and rational. Renault uses both pragmatism and intuition when he dives into a new project, creating a dialogue between sense and sensibility.
Settled in Belgium, Renault’s studio is steadily growing thanks to long-term collaborations with brands such as Cruso, Hay, Hem, Kewlox, Massproductions, Stattmann …
