“Overpower”, de Broin’s latest work to date, playfully examines electrical energy as metaphor for the technological unconscious. A small bronze cast figurine, a knight bearing a sword, pulses with 10,000 volts and ignites a broken household light bulb. Sparks fly as the characters fight off obsolescence, in an age-old battle between faith and reason.
