Sorry for any cross posting...
Nicole Sansone reviews Brout and Marion’s artworks featured in the ‘The
Human Face of Cryptoeconomies’ exhibition, and talks with them about their
work and ideas around value and objects—or more precisely, how objects are
inscribed (and sometimes not) into an idea of what is valuable.
French artists Émilie Brout and Maxime Marion contribute three pieces to
The Human Face of Cryptoeconomies exhibition. Gold and Glitter is a
painstakingly assembled installation of collaged GIFs. Previous
installations have featured the GIFs displayed on a gold iPad atop a pile
of collected gold trinkets; at Furtherfield Gallery now a single golden
helium balloon hovers in front of a floor to ceiling projection. Nakamoto
(The Proof) is video documentation of the artists’ efforts to try and place
a face on the elusive Bitcoin creator, Satoshi Nakamoto (but is it his face
in the end? We don’t know). Untitled SAS is a registered French company
without employees and whose sole purpose is to exist as a work of art.
