About

The Dardex art-group, was founded in 2003 by Quentin Destieu and Sylvain Huguet while students at the Art School of Aix-en-Provence.

Their collaborative works, involving various other artists and researchers, take the shape of installations and multimedia performances making use of interactivity and real time in the field of media arts. Mainly re-using existing materials, their artistic strategy is based on the ideas of appropriation and hacking. Their work question with sarcasm our « media and technology 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 works in various exhibitions and festivals in France and abroad.
