In the Swiss Pavilion at the 57th Venice Biennale, the Swiss-American duo Teresa Hubbard / Alexander Birchler presented Flora, a film installation, and its accompanying work, Bust. The work employs reconstruction, reenactment, and documentary material to imagine the life of Flora Mayo, a largely unknown American artist who was Alberto Giacometti’s lover during the time she studied in Paris in the 1920s.
