Galería Helga de Alvear opens the new exhibition programme with the American artist Slater Bradley who returns to Madrid to represent his latest work she was my la jeteé, a personal remake of the cult film La Jeteé (1962) by his idol Chris Marker, one of the best known experimental filmmakers of the 20th century.  In this work – filmed with Super 8 and HD – Bradley creates an idealised potrait of an unachievable woman. In addition, the exhibiton contains a series of photographs that represent the same archetypical pattern of an ideal woman as in La Jeteé.
