Short film: Constantin Brancusi, sculptor, photographer, filmmaker!

Bande annonce : Images sans fin… par centrepompidou

Romanian sculptor Constantin Brancusi was a visionary artist who delighted in the play of light on form, shape, volume. What many people don’t know is that he was also an avid photographer (which makes perfect sense), and he made movies with a hand-held 35 mm movie camera!

The Centre Pompidou in Paris has pulled together a remarkable exhibition of the photographs and movies — and Brancusi’s studio itself was moved intact to the site, offering an amazing opportunity to see an artist’s creative work environment. jd . The studio installation is permanent, however the exhibition of photos and movies ends tomorrow. If you can’t make it in person, you can enjoy the excellent book and/or a DVD of his short films, both available at the Centre’s bookstore.
