About

Portuguese artist Pedro Barateiro has developed a new film taking as its starting point two particular objects, a letter from the artist Constantin Brancusi and the painting Composition, 1936 by Portuguese abstract artist Maria Helena Vieira da Silva. Both Brancusi and da Silva lived as exiles in Paris in the 1930s. The film consists of a timeline of several images of artworks — in different mediums — that correspond to a certain vision of art history. Barateiro is interested in exploring the idea of modernism, its promise for the future and the significance of da Silva's and Brancusi's work. Kettle's Yard is an important source of material for the film. Barateiro's work explores how we look at art and objects and the way the meanings we ascribe to them change over time. After the premiere at Kettle's Yard, the film will be presented at the Fundaçà £o Arpad Szenes-Vieira da Silva in Lisbon, which houses the painting Composition by Vieira da Silva which inspired it. Curated by Filipa Oliveira, who has also edited a publication to accompany the exhibition. Supported by the Gulbenkian Foundation.
