BMW Tate Live: Performance Room - Pablo Bronstein

A second chance to watch Pablo Bronstein’s performance of Constantinople Kaleidoscope captured live Thursday, 26 April, 2012 at Tate Modern

For the second event in the BMW Tate Live: Performance Room series, Argentinean born artist Pablo Bronstein premieres Constantinople Kaleidoscope, an entirely new work made especially for the Performance Room. Involving a group of dancers, Bronstein creates a baroque trompe l’oeil stage set that exaggerates the perspective of the room with mirrored columns. Bronstein uses architectural design and drawing to engage with the grandiose and imperial past of the built environment and this preoccupation with form frequently extends into his live work.
