About the Artist
Lara Favaretto (b.1973,
Treviso, Italy) lives and works in Turin, Italy. Throughout her career,
Favaretto has worked with a range of media, including performance,
sculpture, installation, and video. Based on profound conceptual
research, Favaretto’s complex artistic practice brings forth works that
interact with space, activating the community and setting of a specific
place. While Favaretto engages and allures audiences with gestures of
the seemingly playful or festive, upon closer examination, her work
paradoxically evokes the inevitability of failure and decay.
