Favre uses different techniques, featuring different iconographic sources, working freely in a multi-media style that encompasses sculpture, objects, video art, performance, installation and personal notes from an intimate diary. Culturally European to the core, Valérie Favre makes her message clear: end the old conflict between homo politicus and the femina privata.
