Émilie Brout and Maxime Marion are graduated from ENSA Nancy, ESA Aix-en-Provence and joined for two years the ENSAD Lab in Paris, where they began their collaboration. Their work has been the recipient of the Arte Laguna Prize and the Contemporary Talent Prize of the François Schneider foundation. It was included in the 5th Moscow International Biennale for Young Art, the 5th ADIAF triennale and numerous group exhibitions and screenings including at Daegu Art Museum; Seongnam Arts Center; AramNuri Arts Center, Goyang; Untitled Miami Beach; OCAT Shenzhen; Art Brussels; Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art of Rijeka; Loop Barcelona; Centre pour l’Image Contemporaine, Geneva; The Solo Project, Basel; Telecom Italia Future Centre, Venice; Palais de Tokyo, MAIF Social Club and Centquatre, Paris; Cité de la céramique, Sèvres; Villa du Parc, Annemasse; Villa Arson, Nice; Vasarely foundation, Aix-en-Provence.

"The meaning of value in a post-whatever era, the mass abundance of images - from amateur image production to professional images to algorithmically generated images - and the consequent shift of the artist from production to post-production - and from the creation of works to the generation of formats - are all recurring topics in the recent work of Émilie Brout and Maxime Marion. Since 2009 the French couple has been focusing on projects that, renovating the modernist language of film, make an extensive use of appropriated content from the web, which is freed from its status of meaningless, apparently valueless data floating in the information networks to be rearranged in complex, algorithmically generated, sometimes interactive narratives, or into powerful, iconic images."
