Pablo Bronstein works primarily with 1980s postmodernist and 18th century post-revolutionary French architecture. Finding parallels between their decadent pretensions and their demonstration of precise moments in history via formalist structure, these periods, for Bronstein, define what it is to be a citizen, embracing the heroic as a uniting social value. Monument In The Style Of Graves On The Debris Of The Bastille is based on Jean-Pierre Louis Laurent Houel’s The Storm of the Bastille; Bronstein gives the famous painting a facelift à la pomo architect Michael Graves. Using Graves’ trademark pastel tones and stylized patterns, Bronstein authors an alternate history: breathtakingly impressive, and hauntingly crypt-like.
