Émilie Brout & Maxime Marion
solo show 

22,48 m² is pleased to present Quickening, a solo exhibition by Émilie Brout & Maxime Marion marking the artists’ third exhibition at the gallery. The show features six recent works and series developed since 2016.

"Post-internet, post-photography, post-human, ... Émilie Brout & Maxime Marion seem to metabolize all these "posts". By tearing apart the classic dualisms opposing organics and technology, real and virtual, human and animal, wild and domestic or even original and copy, the duo notes a cyborg reality, naturally and culturally hybrid, that has always already occurred but nevertheless keeps increasing its potentialities with the development of technosciences. Quickening thus implements several zones of indistinction between a priori antinomic poles. [...]" (Sarah Ihler-Meyer)
