Magali Daniaux & Cédric Pigot
Arctic Tactic
Radio documentairy : 46 min

Kirkenes, North Norway, Russian border, Festival Barents Spektakel, February 2011, -25°.

The Queen, ministers, ambassadors, politicians, a diplomat, architects, artists, journalists and researchers were present and gave us the map… A sonic immersion into political, economic, geostrategic and urban issues of the contemporary Arctic.

Since they met, ten years ago, Magali and Cedric’s joint work bears the dual hallmark of experimentation and performance. Their pieces bring together various media and associate elements from opposite ranges, with a taste for connections between Sci-Fi and documentary forms, high-tech engineering and fantasy tales, heavyweight materials and fleeting sensations. Starting with installations and plastic objects, their work soon included experimental actions and more immaterial artistic gestures. Videos, sound art, music, olfactive research, virtual works bordering the digital arts, have formed, this past 3 years, a cycle of works dealing with climate change, economic, politic and geo-strategic issues, urban development and food management.
