Rivage Research was born during 2021 for the eponym exhibition for the Rencontre de la Photographie d’Arles and continued for the Europa Europa exhibition in Niort the same year. Benjamin Roulet and François Bellebas imagined Rivage Research, a pioneering start up specialized in the deconstructing and remodeling of reality.

    Through this interface, they question the deviances of research and hijack the contemporary forms of corporate communication. This fake company came to existence with the use of CGI, a graphic identity, a real geography, a wikipedia page, videos of marketing propaganda or found classified research results. They combine different artistic fields to showcase a sensible experience and a dreamed landscape.
