Bath Alumni Event

In(tension) – Pablo Bronstein, Heidi Bucher and Rachel Whiteread

Thursday 27 June, 6.30 – 8.30 pm

De León, Bath (please get in touch for address details).

Every spring, De León gallery puts on a show dedicated to highlighting the art of established British and international contemporary artists. This year’s exhibition is entitled In(tension) and will display work by Pablo Bronstein, Heidi Bucher and Rachel Whiteread.

In(tension) unpeels the domestic, architectural and urban environment and explores the inherent tension between space and place, and the imagined membrane separating positive and negative space. All three artists exploit the language of architecture in different ways. They act as cultural archaeologists as they uncover and preserve layers of meaning in the impermanent and often overlooked built environment. The human experience of architecture is recorded, translated and conveyed using a wide variety of materials – such as the latex and mother of pearl skins of Heidi Bucher, the concrete, resin and steel sculptures of Rachel Whiteread and the intricate pen, ink and watercolour drawings of Pablo Bronstein.

Please RSVP to by Friday 21 June.
