Tanguy Benoit is a french artist and designer graduated from the Master of Design, Space and Communication orientation and the Bachelor of Visual Art, Construction option at HEAD - Geneva. By articulating his research around the concept of landscape and its pictorial traditions, he re-examines contemporary ideologies of the border and otherness. His reflections are illustrated in an experimental and multidisciplinary practice that combines the domains of space design, sculpture, cinema, photography and sound design.
