Initials of Laurent Lettrée and Nathalie Delpech, based in Shanghai .
From their passion of sound and moving image originated a fusion artwork form.
Building various universes by putting in resonance time, light, sound and elements is always at the heart of *LLND’s artwork.
Since 2003, this duo creates innovative Art concepts, multiple participatory audio-visual instruments and Interactive Installations.
Their first performances were like a research of synchronization of multiple media on a quest for an ideal artistic fusion.

Retrospective 2004 - 2014
We are proud to invite you to a private preview at Edge Water Space.
Over 400 meters square for an immersive Art experience.
We met in October 2003 at La Miroiterie (famous Parisian Artist squat) and soon after started the duo *LLND.
Now, we live and work in Shanghai since 2009 and you can often see us perform audio visuals or exhibit at various Art venues.
History of our first steps in China...
For the Crossed Years France-China 2004, we traveled to Beijing to produce 4 short films and a participative installation.
During this trip we met with Feng Jiang Zhou, Yan Jun and FM3 at 798 Art zone. The artists were soon reunited in September 2004 at the first Shanghai biennial where we shared the Opening performance stage with B6 and others now famous Chinese artists.
We started the Time Compressions that year, pushed by the need to retrieve and share our memories of our first trip to China.
After exhibiting in 2005 at the City of Science and Industry for the month of Art and Technology, we presented our first solo exhibition titled Kit Art at the Anne Lettree Gallery in Paris.
2006 marked our return to China for a Digital Art exhibition at the Cartoon Festival of Changshou organised by Xiaoying Yuan.
In 2007, the Walsh gallery (renowned top Asian Artists gallery) saw our instrumental sculptures (Treeble Septuor, PEH) at DIVA (video Art fair) and decided to exhibit us at The NEXT fair in Chicago early 2008. For this new Art road trip, Sirius, our newly born son, joined with us :))
In June 2008, we are selected by the National Museum in Beijing during the Olympics.
Continuously attracted by China, our Art family left in 2009 to Chongqing at Organhaus Art Residency during 3 months to create The Silk Road The Inner Road (audio visual performance).
After this amazing experience, Jin JiangBo offered us a space inside Creative Star, his 10 000sqm warehouse in Shanghai to continue working on an 18 Connected Brains sculptures installation; this is where we met KingHood who was intrigued by our media Art way of doing things.
Thanks to KingHood, we participated to the first and second Xucun international residency project in Shaanxi mountains, a 1000 years old village saved by the Arts biennial. We made friends there with Shen Xiaomin (world famous conceptual Artist) and many others as well as the curator Mil Wang.
In 2010, we organized for the French Music National Day, the Electronic Worlds music tour festival with Chinese and French Artists (Li Daiguo , Claude Yvans, Dickson Dee , Yan Jun, Mei Lin, B6, Audioflow , LON).
Our latest exhibition in Shanghai at La Maison Chopard, curated by Victoire Veller was titled Time Resonance.
