DESCRIPTION

Michel de Broin (Montréal, 1970) is a multidisciplinary artist who explores the notions of resistance, misappropriation and recycling with a cynical sense of humour. His works often blur the distinctions between preparatory models, sculpture, video, actions and photographic documentation. These overlaps notwithstanding, de Broin maintains a certain level of consistency: in his hands, everyday objects such as garbage containers, bathroom sinks, staircases, power tools, empty water bottles and streetlights tend to either become somewhat aggressive, collapse onto themselves or even display a certain vulnerability.  This exhibition organized by the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal is the first museum survey of the artist’s work to be held in Canada. Michel de Broin lives and works in Montreal.
