Chapitre 10. Paintins for Scuptors
« Brent Birnbaum’s world is a conceptual bric-a-brac, a well thought out artistic mishmash that may confuse and intrigue those who discover it. Voluntary information overload, pop culture and representations of consumer society are all starting points for analyzing and appreciating Brent’s work. Collector and accu- mulator for many years, he plays with all these flaws to better invite us into his referenced, sparkling, intelligent universe. ….
Nothing annoys Brent more than a mute and passive spectator. Thus he strives to create playlets, dialogues between sculptural and visual works in order to welcome and initiate the viewer, often in an unconscious manner.
By entering the world of American artist Brent Birnbaum for the first time, we can let our minds be drawn into a strange and colorful world. »
