Who is Manon?

The artist Manon produces installations, performances and photography. She first came to prominence in the 1970s with the installation 'The Salmon coloured boudoir'. Her environments and photographic scenes are distillations of social change in the 1970s, sexual liberation, and the search for new roles. In photographic series such as 'Woman with shaved head' and 'Ball of lonelinesses' she addresses among other things the social construction of identity.

She was awarded several prizes, the last one in 2008 was the Prix Meret Oppenheim.

Further information on her biography can be found in the encyclopedia of SIKART from the Swiss Institute for Art Research.
