On the occasion of Pablo Bronstein’s exhibition A is Building, B is Architecture, the Centre d’Art Contemporain is delighted to present two new limited editions by the artist. Through drawing, sculpture, video and performance, Pablo Bronstein is interested in the links between classical architecture and contemporary urbanism, between settings and decors, between art and dance. His work often combines references to history of architecture- from the Roman antiquity and the Baroque to Neo-classicism and Post-modernism, as well as hints to history of art – from the Renaissance to the Modern period.
With this edition, Pablo Bronstein pursue his interest for silverware – from which he is an occasional collector – with an etching representing a pair of sugar casters. This is an exceptional opportunity to collect a work by an artist whose work is included in major public and private collections worldwide, including Tate Collection, London; Collection Städtische Galerie im Lenbachhaus und Kunstbau, Munich; Graphische Sammlung / Collection of Prints and Drawings at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Zurich and Metropolitan Museum of Art; New York.
