Details

Teresa Hubbard / Alexander Birchler's Flora is based on the artists' discoveries about an unknown American artist, Flora Mayo, with whom the Swiss sculptor Alberto Giacometti had a love affair in Paris in the 1920s. While Giacometti is one of the most celebrated artists of the 20th century, Mayo's oeuvre was destroyed when she left Paris in the 1930s and her biography reduced to a footnote in Giacometti scholarship.
