Geta Brătescu

Romania (1926)

Les Mains & The Studio


Geta Brătescu often introduces herself as the main character in her films, where we watch her searching, feeling her way and drawing. With Les Mains and The Studio, which both date back to the end of the ‘70s, the Romanian artist reflects on her environment and her work tools: the workshop, table, paper, felt pen, cigarette and of course, her body. She thereby highlights an aesthetic of everyday life in that protected and domestic space.
