The meaning of value in a post-whatever era, the mass abundance of images - from both amateur and professional production to algorithmically generated images - and the displacement of the artist from production to post-production, and from the creation of works to the generation of formats, are all recurring themes in the recent work of Émilie Brout and Maxime Marion. Since 2009, the French duo has focused on projects that re-invent the modern language of film by reusing and appropriating content from the web. Freeing them from their status as seemingly insignificant and worthless data, they rearrange them into complex and narrative devices, sometimes algorithmically generated, or powerful iconic images.
