Michel de Broin | Interlace
2012_bricks, steel, cement_701×627×427cm
The ideal purpose of interaction in contemporary sculpture is to encourage the viewer to see reality in different angles. De Broin’s site-specific architectural structure elicits people’s instinct to walk up and down the maze of the work. His work employs playful machinations and subtle tricks which fuel a constant questioning.
