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. There also will be a painting (oil on smartphone) that depicts a floral scene found on Instagram over which the artists directly painted.

Brout and Marion (b. 1984 and 1982, Lorraine, France) studied at the École Nationale Supérieure d’Art et de Design de Nancy, the Ecole Superieure d’Art d’Aix en Provence and the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs de Paris. Since 2008 they have been collaborating on new media works that widely use content appropriated from the web and that explore the relationship between the digital and physical. Their work was included in the Moscow Biennale; ADIAF Triennale, Villeurbanne (2016) and numerous group exhibitions and screenings including those at OCAT Shenzhen (2016), Seongnam Art Center (2015) and Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2014). They have had solo exhibitions at 22,48m2, Paris (2013, 2015, 2017). They live and work in Paris.
