Summary
  • "Following a career in theater and film in Paris, the French-Swiss artist Valerie Favre (1959) discovered her true passion: painting. She relocated to Berlin in 1998 after having advanced to one of France's most prominent artists. In her oeuvre, Favre has assembled a bizarre troupe of she-bunnies, so-called idiots, centaurs, and cockroaches, developing enigmatic stories that take place between parking lots and fairy-tale forests; her more recent work draws increasingly from mythology, art, and literary sources." "This publication embarks on a quest through the richly allusive work of Valerie Favre, who has been teaching at the University of the Arts in Berlin since 2006. Essays by Beatrice von Bismarck, Claire Brunet, Jurgen Harten, and Jacqueline Lichtenstein shed light on selected groups of recent works and comment on her most recent artistic productions, her central themes, and her working methods against the backdrop of this broad overview."--BOOK JACKET.
