Sara Favriau

Born in 1983. Lives and works in Paris.

Between image and sculpture: the artworks of Sara Favriau occupy the interstice. Images, in the sense that they reproduce somewhat recognizable forms laden with both personal and collective meanings. Sculptures, because they deploy in space and toy with masses, voids, points of view, scale, distance and proximity from within and without. Occurring in both physical and mental space, her works incur ambulation, movement of body and mind, thus stimulating their fictional potential. (Sarah Ihler Meyer).
