Works in the exhibition
Over nearly twenty years of cross-disciplinary exploration, Michel de Broin has developed an impressive and ever-broadening visual vocabulary. In each new work, he assigns universally recognizable objects new and unexpected uses, fascinating and confounding his viewer with subtle sleights-of-hand. The re-imagined objects he creates give us glimpses into worlds of possibilities.Parallel to his solo exhibition at the Musée d’art contemporain de Montreal, Division Gallery presents a selection of work including Tour de force,Vacuum Orgy, Beam Tea Light, and Fuite. Exhibited for the first time, Tour de force is a new sculpture drawn from used tires. The work is a virtual black hole, condensing superimposed concentric tires into a dense and massive object.
