Michel Blazy: We Were the Robots

This site-specific installation created for the Moody is a fable about resilience. It features burnt wood pallets depicting robots and animals working on the ruins of a post-apocalyptic landscape. It is a world that tries to become alive again on the consumed remains of an absurd way of life with its commercial exchanges, human relations, energy consumption, consumerism and waste. Blazy (b 1966, Monaco) is based in Paris. The Moody is proud to present the first exhibition of his work in Texas.
 


This exhibition is made possible in part by Étant donnés Contemporary Art, a program of the French American Cultural Exchange (FACE) Foundation. Étant donnés is developed in partnership with the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States, with lead funding from the Florence Gould Foundation, the Helen Frankenthaler Foundation, Chanel USA, the ADAGP, the French Ministry of Culture, and Institut Français.
