Sarjasta Suites francaises 2 (1999): La Main

The five photographs are from the Suites françaises 2 (“French suites”) series. The series is about language and learning language, as seen through the artist’s personal experiences. Brotherus travelled to France to an artist residency without knowing any French. She began learning the language by naming things in her surroundings by their French names. Brotherus has from the start of her career often appeared in her own photographs, as is the case in this series. The title of the series is borrowed from a composition by Johann Sebastian Bach.
