Romain Tardy is a visual artist, and focuses his work primarily in digital arts.
Born on September 23, 1984, in Paris, he studied at the École des Beaux-Arts before working for various animation and post-production studios in Paris. He also worked as a VJ at numerous events in France and across Europe, which led him to further examine the complex connections between sound and image. With this experience,Tardy, along with three other artists, created the European visual label Antivj in 2008, which formed the base of his research and work on projected light and its in uence on perception. He remained one of the label’s main artists until late 2013.
His installations, which often use the technique of videomapping, are conceived as tangible experiences in situ and use light as a way to enhance existing architecture or original structures. By examining our relationship to reality as we are confronted by computer imagery and the social changes that it triggers, as well as the way that digital technology is situated in public space,Tardy’s installations seek to evoke these current issues through a poetic approach. His work has been exhibited in more than 15 countries, including France, Sweden,The Netherlands, Poland, Switzerland, UK, Czech Republic, Belgium, China, South Korea, Japan, Mexico, USA (New York), Cuba…
