Crossing Borders 2012 - 23 October 2012
Pablo Bronstein is an Argentinian artist who lives and works in London, specialises in architectural sketches in ink and gouache, set in ornate frames and depicting imagined buildings incorporating styles from 18th century France and the 1980s. His work also includes live performance and has included dance. He discusses his work with dance artist Matthias Sperling.
Pablo Bronstein’s drawings, paintings, installations, films and performances are underpinned by his references to architectural styles and motifs ranging from the Baroque to the Postmodern period. While his architectural interventions play with notions of power and economy as they are manifested in architectural form, his performances, often working with groups of dancers, delineate both physical and social spaces through gesture and choreographed movement. Pablo Bronstein (b. 1977, Buenos Aires) lives and works in London. Recent solo exhibitions include Sketches for Regency Living, ICA, London; Kunsthal Charlottenborg, Copenhagen; Pablo Bronstein at the Met, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Garden a la Mode, Sculpture Court Commission, Tate Britain, Palaces of Turin, Franco Noero, Turin; and Jail, Herald St, London.
