Sarah Boris’ three-act theatre of design lays bare her process.
As part of Le Havre’s design festival Une Saison Graphique, renowned artist Sarah Boris was invited to stage an exhibition of her work in the the town hall’s cavernous theatre. Taking her venue into account, Sarah designed the exhibition to be set as a three-act theatre of design that showed her artistic process..
The show consisted of a studio space where Sarah was based two to three days a week, with font specimens, paper samples, and reference magazines and books staging the various tools in daily design; an exhibition space showcasing a selection of ten years of work taken from two books Sarah collated and made for the exhibition; and lastly, what Sarah calls a design confessional where visitors were invited to reveal obsessions, doubts, queries, and mistakes on design and art in a real confessional booth.
Alongside the exhibition, Sarah created two four-colour screenprinted posters advertising the festival to be plastered around Le Havre. What do you think about this original take on poster design and exhibition? Are you a fan of Sarah Boris’s work? Share your thoughts with us on the comments below!
