Michel Blazy: We Were the Robots

About the Event

Open daily Tuesday - Saturday, 10AM-5PM, Free Admission

Michel Blazy’s site-specific installation “We Were the Robots” 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.
