“Viva la Robolución!” by +Brauer, upcycled luminous robots, on exhibition at the M.A.D.Gallery [Geneva]

The MB&F M.A.D.Gallery is pleased to present 14 luminous robot sculptures by Parisian artist Bruno Lefèvre-Brauer, aka +Brauer.

These retro-futuristic robots, gathered in the collection “Viva la Robolución!”, are prime examples of +Brauer creating today’s art out of yesterday’s materials.

+Brauer’s art form is called upcycling, and it is a remarkable concept that allows materials to be saved, reused, and reclaimed. Born out of what could be termed a poetic resistance to overconsumption, the artist chooses components for his sculptures that have an industrial past mainly from the 1950s and 60s. Marked by time and boasting patinas derived from hard use, this imbues the robots with their very specific character and makes them more visually interesting.

Each completed robot is a unique piece with its own tailor-made lighting design. At night, it is the turn of the poetic, evocative light fittings to reveal their magic.
