The exhibition Selbstmord. Suicide at Neuer Berliner Kunstverein presents two extensive groups of works by Valérie Favre. On show will be the Suicide cycle (2003–2013), consisting of 129 small-format paintings, representing the self-chosen death, partly based on actual facts, partly fiction. The starting point of the works is the very moment of the radical decision to end one’s life, and the self-dramatization of the theatrical moment of death as well as the impact on the bereaved. In the classic 18 x 24 cm format, Favre outlines with reduced color shades different types of suicide.
