Émilie Brout & Maxime Marion

Deliverance

June 17 – July 22, 2017
Opening Reception: June 17, 7 – 9pm

Steve Turner is pleased to present Deliverance, a solo exhibition by the Paris-based collaborative duo of Émilie Brout & Maxime Marion featuring video, painting and sculpture that highlight the nexus of nature and new technology.

Among other works, they will present Lightning Ride, a video that consists of Youtube clips of taser training sessions that have been modified frame by frame with a computer-generated oil painting effect. Oasis Max Life is a floral arrangement made of smartphones and tablets displaying gif animations of plant cartoons sprouting from a block of floral arrangement foam. Lastly, a group of paintings depict images of nature found on Instagram; Brout and Marion then applied paint directly atop the image as captured on a smartphone.
