'Cut in the Dark' by Michel de Broin Home
Playing on his reluctance to give in to regulatory systems and the functions of society, Michel de Broin attempts to observe, understand and question modern utopian aspirations using painting, drawing, video and photographic techniques.
Forget energy saving and turning everything off when you're not using it. This artist sees efficiency as pure laziness as he creates his own absurd science. In effect, de Broin practices active resistance and seeks to use maximum energy for minimum performance. Take his work on light bulbs for instance. He has taken the filament from a broken 100 watt bulb and used it to dimly light a much smaller three watt bulb. His work discourages the opportunity for development in order to promote an aesthetic loss and it is this scientific incentive that he believes stimulates the production of new rich and complex metaphors. A waste of energy, waste of time? You have until November 19th to decide.
