19 May - 7 July 2019, viewing by appointment
Pablo Bronstein, Heidi Bucher, Rachel Whiteread.
DE LEÓN is delighted to be showing the work of three international artists, Pablo Bronstein, Heidi Bucher and Rachel Whiteread. The exhibition 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 of these artists exploit the language of architecture, however the media used as well as their intent differs. 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.
