Intervention For A Piazza In Turin

2006
Ink, pencil & gouache on tracing paper in artist’s frame

42 x 131.5 cm

Intervention For A Piazza In Turin presents the same project design as Proposal, but from a more obscure angle that emphasises the dramatic scale and authoritarian power of Bronstein’s intersecting walls. Rendered on tracing paper, the distant city horizon and classical square are made passive and delicate, dominated by the opaque gouache barriers. By giving his intervention concrete form, Bronstein wittily claims the territory with an X, implicating a Machiavellian control in the way public space is conceived and developed.
