Hide & Seek, at the Kemistry Gallery, will tell the story of an ‘intriguing and sophisticated’ woman travelling from one pattern to the next, hiding from the viewer.
Favre says she wanted to develop a show with a narrative core, that also played with positive and negative space.
She says, ‘There is such beauty and intrigue in those repetitive concrete balconies, I felt like creating a series of abstract prints based on the architectural patterns that no-one really notices.’
The show will feature a series of prints set together as a series of optical experiments. Favre says, ‘I hope it will make people see the beauty in their everyday surroundings, leaving with a smile and feeling slightly dizzy.’
