press release

Galería Helga de Alvear opens the new exhibition programme with the American artist Slater Bradley who returns to Madrid to represent his latest work she was my la jeteé, a personal remake of the cult film La Jeteé (1962) by his idol Chris Marker, one of the best known experimental filmmakers of the 20th century. In this work – filmed with Super 8 and HD – Bradley creates an idealised potrait of an unachievable woman. In addition, the exhibiton contains a series of photographs that represent the same archetypical pattern of an ideal woman as in La Jeteé.
