Marie Combes (France, 1960) is a visual artist. She works with photography, video and sound. She studied filmmaking and video art at the Université Paris 8 . Her work usually explores the limits and restrictions of frameworks, as well as the relationships and tensions in the continuous flow of images. Patrick Renaud is also a visual artist. He also works with photography and video. His images intend to show the ephemeral nature of things, whether architectures or landscapes. Since 2012 they work together setting up an audiovisual language capable of registering the fragmentation of reality. In their videos, editing establishes a sort of balance between peers: on the one hand image and sound, on the other hand, fiction and documentary.

In March 2013 they took part in the video competition organised annualy by Le Cube, Centre de Création Numérique, in Issy-les-Moulineaux, France. They have also worked with the Metropolitan Observatory for Digital Culture and Representation in Detroit.

Pornographie revolves around one of the main capabilities of video technology: Registering, through the use of optics, the world in a different way. Specifically, in the film, the human body builds, eventually, a universe of rhythms and minimal shapes by means of this play of making small and fragmentating what we perceive as a unit.
