Ydessa, the Bears and etc. (2004)
About Ydessa, the Bears and etc.
Ydessa Hendeles’ exhibition entitled “The living and the Artificial” (consisting of works of art all comprising a photograph of living persons in the company of one or several teddy bears) had puzzled Agnès Varda so much that she decided to go to Toronto where the artist lives and interview her. In front of Agnes Varda’s DV camera, Ydessa tells about the singularity of her artistic approach. She also expresses herself about the Holocaust, which both her parents survived.
