Michel de Broin

Born in Canada in 1970. Lives and works in Montreal and Berlin. Recent exhibitions include: Musée d’art contemporain du Val-de-Marne, Vitry-sur-Seine; The National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa; Musée Nationale des Beaux-Arts du Québec; PSWAR, Amsterdam; Kuenstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin.

Playing with the paradox and tension between two opposite poles, the proposal of these actions is to turn our everyday points of reference about traffic on their head. Synonymous with speed and power, the car is rebuilt following the parameters of a bicycle (pedals, human power, cleaning, saving); whilst the bicycle, synonymous with a green mode of transportation, seems to have acquired the pollutant quality of the car.
