Laurence Favre

Laurence Favre (Switzerland)

Laurence Favre works with still and moving images, primarily analog. Her work explores how to divert constructed binary oppositions between visible and invisible, presence and absence, memory and oblivion, the real and the fictional, generating poetic spaces where movement can be triggered. In the last several years she has been focusing on colonial and environmental matters, and their entanglements.

Her films and installations have been shown at Locarno film festival, Rotterdam IFFR, Hong Kong HKIFF, Guanajuato GIFF among others, as well as in art spaces and informal spaces.

Laurence lives and works in Berlin and Geneva, she is an active member of the artist-run filmlab LaborBerlin and part of the SPECTRAL coordination team, a four year collaborative project on Expanded Cinematic Arts led by 6 european filmlabs.
