Future Gallery is proud to announce our next exhibition Alchemic Renderings featuring works by Kévin Bray, Alexandra Martens Serrano, Robuche. Bray has collaborated with an AI melding countless versions of his original hand drawn sketches processed by a generative engine. The resulting compositions are harmonious complex collages. Martens Serrano has constructed an array of ecosystems that are puzzled together out of a plethora of materials including wood, metal, a tubular design system, 3D printed elements, rotary engines. Robuche’s works are photographic prints which are equal parts painting and collage, simultaneously fragmented and defined, these digital constructions defy methodology.
The unifying thread in these artists’ practice is their inherent will towards a collaborative relationship with technology. The magical collaboration that happens between screen and physical manifestation is a conversation that takes place in a language they are all native in. The alchemy occurs, in the between, the digital tool sets and hand crafted elements are simultaneously activated. These alchemic renderings are positions that question our current relationship with a hybridized reality.
Kévin Bray (1989* FR)
Moving across the boundaries of different disciplines, Bray’s work explores how the form and language of past and present technologies have manipulated and transformed our perspective of the world. By repurposing specific software and media, he critically considers our relationship to these tools and the roles they have within the history of human beings. Experimenting with how they are visualized and their potential to be manipulated into other ways of functioning, he triggers and reflects upon the various meanings and histories behind them. His vivid images are the product of a methodology defined by a hybridity of techniques, motifs, and visual codes. This approach enables him to play with a variety of new and old technologies and tools, amplify and combine them, and develop his own artistic language.

Martens Serrano’s The Already Plural Body is a triptych of biomes composed as one installation. Displayed on three elevated planes, each work’s surface flourishes from the floor upwards. The installation approaches multiple bodies, organic as much as artificial, as infrastructures explored through a variety of material and metaphorical structures. The topographical layers of each patch ecosystem in the work seek to resonate interweaved material and intellectual inter-species histories. By diffracting the gaze, the different scales of relations contaminating and collaborating unfold.
Robuche – Javier Rodriguez (1991* ES) & Lou Buche (1991* FR)
Robuche translates ideas into images in unconventional ways. They parasite the formats exploring the porosity of the media, reorganizing and distorting the established production flows to develop its own language at the intersections of art and design. Endless forms of conversation and experimentation are at the core of the work. Everything is an image. Energetic visualizations are executed as paintings, sculptures and design artifacts.
