The first solo exhibition of Romanian artist Geta Brătescu in London.
Romanian artist Geta Brătescu’s (b.1926) vivid practice has comprised performance, textiles, collage, print-making, installation and film. Living and working in Bucharest throughout Ceauşescu’s totalitarian regime, Brătescu embraced the studio as an autonomous space, free from economic or political influences.
Concerned with identity and dematerialisation, Brătescu conjures questions of ethics and femininity through her longstanding curiosity in mythical and literary figures, including Aesop, Faust, Beckett and Medea. These concepts have underlain much of her work through experiments in material rearrangements, charting the movement of her hands, the disappearance or concealment of her own image, and performing to the camera through her photographic series and films.
Her exhibition will focus on this lifelong approach to the studio as a performative, contemplative and critical space to reflect on one’s own position in the world.
