With his work, the Argentine, London-based artist Pablo Bronstein explores Baroque, Rococo and neoclassical architecture and ornamentation. He uses a variety of media, such as drawings, large-scale installations and classical dance. For Le Mouvement, the 12th Swiss Sculpture Exhibition in Biel/Bienne, he presents a performance of a dancer on the the balcony of a classical facade that overlooks Zentralplatz of Biel/Bienne, titled Girl on a Late-19th-Century Swiss Balcony. The performance raises the questions: Is the balcony always private? Or does it become public the moment it is occupied by a human body?
