Reciprocal Energy.

Canadian House & Home features Michel de Broin, a Montreal born artist who has assembled jaw dropping sculptures for private and public awe. His projects seek to escape the constraining nature of modern utopian aspirations and attempts to reenact them in a playful manner. I found them to create a bit of a smile, and test my belief in what I am actually seeing is true. It is.

De Broin has been a part of many solo shows across Europe, more recently the Reciprocal Energy in Paris, 2008. De Broin has also been part of many group exhibitions in Canada, Europe and United States. In Superficial, deep into the woods in Alcase, France, a large stone is covered with large fragments of mirror to become a reflective surface of the surroundings. The rock disappears.

Inspired by the curved staircases which are so much a part of Montreal’s identity, Revolutions, in Parc Maisonneuve-Cartier, is a staircase twists into a knot, deconstructing the vertical symbolism normally attributed to stairs.

Photography is a big part of the final affect of the work – carrying his vision away from the installation. This photo project called Solitude consists of a suspended mobile home in isolation but in the centre of traffic for a retreat.
