Sara Favriau

La redite en somme, ne s’amuse pas de sa répétition singulière*
From 18/02/2016 to 15/05/2016

Winner of the Prix Découverte des Amis du Palais de Tokyo 2014

“Even if the act of creation is an isolated, personal one, for me, part of the creative process is about collaborations and encounters.” (1)

Winner of the Prix Découverte des Amis du Palais de Tokyo in 2014, Sara Favriau (born in 1983, lives in Paris) deploys a monumental, poetic sculpture, made of cleats of sculpted wood, assembled into cabin-containers, in which several artists have been invited to exhibit.

*To sum up, repetition does not delight in singular reiteration
