<em>The Great Encounter</em>

Michel de Broin
The Great Encounter, 2008
Two refrigerators, plexiglass
Dimensions variable

A refrigerator stands alone in its corner and is withdrawn from the world, it controls its atmosphere and protects its contents. Its door must be kept closed, otherwise it loses its cool. This withdrawal explains the isolation of refrigerators. Is it possible to envision the encounter between two refrigerators? In this installation, two solitudes unite through a canal connecting their inside worlds. This unusual encounter produces a mist on the surface that binds them together.
