Galerie Maubert, Paris

Sara Favriau

Sara Favriau creates hybrid works, in «circulation» and «evolution», which question the links between man, nature and art, but also the artwork and its ecosystem;its living form. For several years now, the artist has been working with scientists from INRA-Provence on a project involving forests and climate issues, particularly drought.

 

In the middle of the booth, the sculpture-project Le brin d’une herbe jaillit à qui la vie déborde will be created in 2024 using trees from the Parc forestier de la Poudrerie (Miramas). It’s a Va’a sculpture-pirogue, carved out and protected by fire. A living young tree will serve as a sail. As part of the 2024 Cultural Olympiad, the work will sail on the Etang de Berre in May, while hosting a dance performance. A video will recount the production and the sailing performance.

 

Behind, inside the wall, a thin crack reveals a linear installation (6 meters); a layer of ‘‘bristles’’, but of vegetal origin. Composed of ‘‘recycled’’ wood shavings from previously sculpted works, held together by large hand-forged staples, Les crins is a hybrid stratification, blending the human with the vegetal.

 

Finally, a series of functional artworks created with the COLAAB association (vases, shelves, consoles, etc.) link design, art and life, extending the scope of sculpture towards life and regeneration. These sculptures, hung in series, form a singular micro-universe where «the tiny generates its own space and extends itself».
