About Michel de Broin

Michel de Broin’s work ranges from assemblage to video and photography. His multifaceted production deals with energy flows, entropic devolution, and the forms of visual, spatial, and technological paradox that derive from these forces. Most of his works are retooled everyday appliances, found objects that disclose an ironic re-utilization not only of the mechanic universe but also of tropes of Conceptual Art and Minimalism. In 2007 he was the recipient of the Sobey Art Award. He holds a BFA from Concordia University, Montréal and an MFA from the Université du Québec à Montréal. De Broin currently lives and works in New York.
