Born in 1970 in Montreal, Michel de Broin lives and works in Montreal and in Berlin. Through a collection of objects and actions, his works seek to escape the constraining nature of modern Utopian aspirations whilst attempting to reenact them in playful, jesting objects that glorify the referent on the one hand while upstaging it on the other. Drawing on his doubt in the capacity and value of ideas, his sculptural projects seek to put them to the test by literally confronting them with the necessities of reality in assemblage that often troubles the ideas it purports to speak for.
