Animated or not, machines are at the heart of Joe Rush's work. If his sculptures are born from their dismemberment,
it is their ability to move that inspires him a mechanical art of motion.
Attentive to their rhythm, the vibration of a mechanical pulse, determined by their primary industrial function,
he metamorphoses machines by exploiting their capacity for movement.
Sculptural, mutant, turbulent, aerial or bestial, each of them performs with emotion in a mechanical ballet
of which he is the choreographer.
