For the New Viewings project, the exhibition space becomes the stage on which the artist acts as a theatrical goddess figure, looking out into the darkened gallery space.
“I am wrapped in a mantle which is a protective shell in which I was formed in the world. Many women (the list goes on) have helped and guided me along their paths and their choices to evolve. The fabric is inscribed with hundreds of names of female artists and goddesses. This coat represents the symbol of my necessarily unfinished development I am trying to represent what influences my life and to define who I am, a person in the process of becoming, facing the demise of the world”. (Valerie Favre)
