Camille Zisswiller and Nicolas Lefebvre form an artistic duo. Between the fixed image and the video image, their work explores the means whereby individuals inhabit real or fictive environments. Conducive to shifts between different supports, their research results from a broadened dialogue which leads them to approach images by surprise in the interval between writing and what is formulated beyond language. Each of their projects takes up position in a specific milieu; territories on the margins in which images appear in secret, like vernacular chronicles. Holding qualifications from the École du Louvre (Paris), the Université de Strasbourg, and then HEAR (Strasbourg) and La Cambre (Brussels), they are together doing a post-diploma course at Le Fresnoy – Studio national des arts contemporains and taking part in creative residencies in Beijing (Xu Yuan Center), Venice (Architecture Biennale), Nijni Novgorod (Vyksa AIR),and Saint-Jans-Cappel (Villa Marguerite Yourcenar).
