+Brauer, Viva la roboluciòn!

+Brauer carefully chooses vintage objects that have an industrial past, that are marked by time and whose patina has been moulded by years of manual use.
Abandoned or forgotten in workshops and garages, the industrial parts are reborn in unique works
of art that embrace us with their kind presence, imposing personality, and amazing humanity.

+ Brauer is a graphic designer living in Paris.

Over the past 20 years he has designed numerous album covers for French and international artists and pursued his personal artistic expression through painting, photography and sculpture.
He regularly exhibits in Paris, and presents here a few pieces from his series “Viva la roboluciòn! “

From childhood, +Brauer has been strongly influenced by Sci-Fi novels, comics and American TV series, admiring both the magical world of “Metropolis” by Fritz Lang and the vastness of ” 2001: A Space Odyssey” by S. Kubrick.

More than their technological features, he tries to reveal the original, almost primative, form of the robots he creates.  +Brauer carefully chooses vintage objects that have an industrial past, that are marked by time and whose patina has been moulded by years of manual use. He admires the beauty, sometimes hidden, of these discarded industrial parts, alters their appearance, sculpts them, and incorporates light sources into their structure before assembling the parts together to create a unique and poetic piece.

The beauty of the materials and the venerable patinas express their beauty in the light of day, while at night, it is the turn of the strange, evocative light fittings to reveal their magic. Right from conception, the element of light is an integral part of the artwork: each robot is designed to interact with it’s environment in a different way whether it is turned on or off.

Abandoned or forgotten in workshops and garages, the industrial parts are reborn in unique works of art that embrace us with their kind presence, imposing personality, and amazing humanity.
Each piece is a statement of poetic resistance to mass-consumption.
