Sandra and Gaspard Bébié-Valérian: about us.

As individuals and artists, we seek to escape a deterministic life led by technologies; these same technologies which are designed to colonize our daily routines, both in domestic or professional time. For the last few years, we focused on social and environment issues such as energy production, interspecism symbiosis, and cooperation for survival. We believe in the power of care to foster more empathy and a better understanding of our ecosystems. For that purpose, we include in our researches living organisms as agents for change, involving both a respectful and humble position towards the complicated diversity of life.

We work together since 2004 and have participated in several exhibitions and festivals, among others Piksel (Bergen), Science Gallery (Melbourne), Voltaje Festival (Bogota), Rua Red art center (Dublin), EDF Fundation (Paris), Centraltrack (Dallas), National Dramatic Center (Montpellier), SKOL Art Center and Art Souterrain (Montreal) or Santa Monica art center (Barcelona)...
