Émilie Brout & Maxime Marion

Werkperiode in Kunsthal Gent: 01.03.2021 - 21.03.2021

De praktijk van Émilie Brout & Maxime Marion (1984 en 1982, wonen en werken in Parijs) richt zich op de cultuur en het gebruik van het web: ze werken vaak met en rond het internet. Hun werk krijgt vorm in verschillende media, maar ze onderzoeken in het bijzonder het medium video, waarvan ze de grenzen opzoeken via niet-lineaire verhaallijnen, video’s zonder einde, en de context waarin het werk getoond wordt. Door zorgvuldige ontcijfering proberen ze de economische, politieke en juridische specificiteiten van bestaande systemen of structuren te identificeren alvorens ze te infiltreren, en sporen na te laten of erover te rapporteren in hun werk, soms met narratieve vormen. In Kunsthal Gent maken ze een geheel nieuwe film waarin ze onderzoeken hoe het technokapitalisme kan infiltreren in elk klein aspect van ons leven, en hoe het onze perceptie van de wereld en van onszelf verandert. Parallel hieraan ontwikkelen ze discrete installaties die de tentoonstellingsruimte in vraag stellen.
