Considered as one of the major figures of contemporary art, Helena Almeida became a figurehead of performance and conceptual art in the seventies. Her work focuses on the importance of the body. A conflicting subject for political and personal expression, the human body confronts the surrounding world to better manipulate it. The film takes place in the studio of the artist in a place where her partially obscured or fragmented body becomes the stake of the creative process of the artist and the filmmaker.
Pic-nic welcome !
