Freedom of Forms

GETA BRÃTESCU - FREEDOM OF FORMS

For the first time in Denmark, a retrospect presentation of works by the Romanian artist Geta Brãtescu (1926-2018) will be presented, including drawings, collage, sculpture, and photography. The exhibition, titled Freedom of Forms, is based on Brãtescu’s lifelong interest in the lively, dynamic, and almost borderless potential of abstract imagery.

For more than five decades she worked in a studio in her own home in Bucharest, where in the shadow of the communist regime’s surveillance and repression, she found a creative and intellectual haven – and inspired her contemporary colleagues. Despite her significant position in Rumania, it was only at an advanced age that Geta Brãtescu achieved international recognition, after the fall of communism and culminating with her solo exhibition at the Venice Biennale in 2017.
