Christea Roberts Gallery – Pablo Bronstein (Until May 30th, 2020)
There is just a couple days left to visit Argentine-born Londoner Pablo Bronstein’s new work for Christea Roberts Gallery. Bronstein’s practice spans prints and drawings through performance and installation, with a fascination with the power and play of architecture as his focus. In his latest hand-painted print, Dressing table, Lisbon earthquake, 2019, the smashed table becomes a symbol of baroque languor interrupted. The titular natural disaster marked the beginning of The Age of Reason in 18th century Europe, offering the optimist’s view that inspiration and paradigm shifts can come from great upheaval.
This online viewing features not just Bronstein’s vivid prints of grandness askew, but a video interview with the artist reflecting on his practice.
