Romanian artist Geta Brătescu's practice comprises performance, textiles, paper collage, print-making, film and installation.

At 91 years old, Brătescu continues to look at her studio as a place to redefine the self, raising questions of self-identity and dematerialisation, ethics and femininity. Accumulating everyday items – the wooden stirrers from her daily coffee or cigarette papers – her experiments in material rearrangements take on a diaristic nature. Rhythmically choreographing shape and form, collaged series act as notations of time and space. Encouraging elements of chance she employs techniques such as automatic drawing, ink-blot pictures and drawing with her eyes closed, Brătescu brings gesture and association to the fore.
