> DESCRIPTION

Manon has pioneered body and performance art since the 1970s. In her ambivalent depiction of female identity, she deliberately affirms gender roles as well as their subversion. Manon is internationally recognized for her radical performances and conceptual photographs in which she addresses the construction of identities. Her work is concurrent with artists such as Cindy Sherman, Adrian Piper or Hannah Wilke.

Commissioned by the Swiss Institute, this retrospective will include the installations "The Lox-Colored Boudoir" (1974) and "The End of Lola Montez" (1975), as well as the most important series of her photographic works, "La Dame au crain rasé" (1977), "The Grey Wall" (1979), and her newest series, "Borderline," (2007).

Catalog in cooperation with Helmhaus Zurich with essays by Jean-Christophe Ammann, Amelia Jones, Jörg Heiser, Brigitte Ulmer and Gianni Jetzer.
