The French-Swiss artist Valérie Favre (* 1959) found her way to her true passion in Paris after a career in theater and film: painting. She moved to Berlin in 1998 after quickly advancing to one of France ’s most-noticed artists in the nineteen nineties. Bunnies, so-called idiots, centaurs, and cockroaches: Favre has assembled a bizarre troupe in order to develop puzzling stories that take place between parking places and Grimm-like fairy tale forests for which she has increasing drawn from mythological, art historical, and literary sources. The publication is a tour de force through the richly allusive work of Valérie Favre, who has been teaching at University of the Arts Berlin since 2006. Renowned international authors shed light on selected groups of recent works and analyze her newest artistic production, their central themes and working methods against the backdrop of this wide-ranging overview.
