Adriena Simotová

Michelle Horacek

2002, 22:00 minutes, Colour, English/Czech


This bilingual documentary was taped in Prague, Czech Republic and follows the work and philosophy of acclaimed Czech visual artist, Adriena Simotová. Her unique process of using limitations of sight, and her insights after teaching blind children, lead her to a new way of intuiting image and form. We watch her sculpt through layers of paper, and use dry paint powder, to test the boundaries between the tangible realm and the realm of spirit.
