Structured like a manual, this volume accompanies entries on her works with essays by critics and experts from various disciplines who tackle themes complementary but not directly connected to the artist’s practice. Favaretto, who also edited the book, explains: “I decided not to follow any chronological or alphabetical order, but to instead suggest a unified discourse by making the reading experience flow as smoothly as possible, following an underground web of references between the texts that would elude any scansion dictated by the sequence of dates or letters.”
About the Artist
Lara Favaretto has worked with a range of media including performance, video, sculpture and installation. Her practice is the outcome of profound conceptual research and her works interact with space and the community around them. The works often emerge in powerful, almost violent actions while appearing with stunning aesthetic quality.
Favaretto’s site-specific installation Blue Velvet is part of the Art Jameel Collection.
