Henriette Zephir: le souffle des esprits
Bastien Genoux & Mario Del Curto
Switzerland, 18 min
Two films tracking the career of two Art Brut creators. Yvonne Robert (1922), a daughter and wife of marsh farmers, began to paper the walls of her house with her paintings at the age of 42. In 1961, Henriette Zéphir (1920-2012) decided to respond to the request of “spirits” asking her to record their positive “energies” via ink and watercolour: a life’ s work.
A co-production with "Collection de l'Art Brut"
