Back to the Future with Michaël Renassia
Like something salvaged from a wrinkled VHS tape, Parisian artist, director and audio technician Michaël Renassia creates video sequences that are striking. There is a pervading 90s futurist aesthetic, creating a visual landscape of pixels and distortions, making his work as appealing to musicians as it is to numerous brands; he has worked with both Para One and Basement Jaxx as well as a number of artists from the Japanese experimental scene, and with brands such as 24 Sèvre, Le Bon Marché, Balmain and Nike. Renassia’s videos and ads are as immersive as they are playful.
