dir. Nathalie David

GEGO, Gertrud Louise Goldschmidt (born 1912 in Hamburg, studied architecture in Stuttgart, Germany, died 1994 in Caracas,Venezuela) was one of the leading artists of her generation in Latin America, known above all for her large-scale spatial installations. She regarded her works not as sculptures, but as structures or drawings in space.

The film is a retrospective of Gego’s work.

Nathalie David combines present day footage from Caracas and archive footage of Gego’s work and life with Gego’s texts, “Sabiduras and Testimonies”, and statements from curators, art historians and family members.
