Artist and architect, Didier Faustino works on the intimate relationship between the body and space. His approach is multifaceted, from the installation to experimentation, from the creation of subversive artworks to that of spaces favorable to the exacerbation of the senses.

Among his most emblematic pieces: the Hermès H Box (2006), the traveling video pavilion created to be exhibited in numerous museums all over the world (Tate Modern in London, Centre Pompidou in Paris, the Beyeler Foundation in Bâle…), Body in Transit (2000), a minimal space and critique, presented at the Venice Biennale and added to the Centre Pompidou’s collections, Double Happiness (2009), a double aerial seesaw presented at the Hong Kong/Shenzhen biennale, and Revolution(s) (2004), a chrysalis ceiling for the Museum of Modern Art City of Paris, also presented at the Couvent des Cordeliers.

Didier Faustino created the Bureau des Mésarchitectures in 2002 and received the Dejean Prize from the architecture academy for the entirety of his 2010 works. He was distinguished several times with the Chernikhov Prize (Moscow), he participated in numerous biennales (Venice, Taipei, Yokohama, Sao Paulo, Istanbul, Beijing…) and in 2009, created Evento, the new urban and artistic rendezvous in Bordeaux.

In 2010, he exhibited his work at the CCA Kitakyushu in Japan and at the Tokyo Maison Hermès. In 2011, he exhibited at the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation’s Modern Art in Lisbon (January), at the Michel Rein Gallery in the Galeries Lafayette as part of an event called Designer’s Days (01/06 -20/06) and the Cité de l’Architecture in Paris (29/09 - 07/11).
