→ ARTIST STATEMENT

Ada Favaron is a graphic designer and artist from Italy, currently based in Berlin.
Her research-based practice questions the myths of cultural identity and it is mainly triggered by conspiracy theories, subcultures, unorthodox subjects and the everlasting dilemma authentic vs fake.
Interweaving modes of “mockumentary”, essay and storytelling, Ada actively investigates how we negotiate the information we receive from the media and explores topics often ignored by popular platforms.
Engaging with interviews, sound and found footage – mainly on the web – she uses a provoking (often tongue in cheek) tone to question the role of the designer/artist as a creator of documentary material and visual storyteller.
