Bonjour-Ho (i'm NEVER letting this one die), I'm Favielle a Queer Black Woman, textile practitioners and a fibers explorer. Textiles are interwoven with society and my work tends to put an emphasis on this link. However, I will say this: right now I'm mostly thinking and planning.
What is the favorite piece of art that you have done?
The favorite piece of art I have made is the Cupid's Glove. It encompasses what I want to do and where I want to be. I want to make art that challenges your daily life. Some might find this project absurd, cute, funny, improbable, grotesque and there's space for these reactions. Also, for this project I was not alone. I was with my good friend Juliette D. She lent me her hand and time. We were a team and uplifted each other. The imposter syndrome goes down when you are not alone.
Boredom... In moments when I feel like I lack interest, I find time to imagine and be creative. I guess it's my survival instinct manifesting itself through creativity. Creating keeps me interested and anchored in the present. I'm trying to avoid becoming a bored and apathetic person. That's what inspires me to create!
