Melanie Manchot
Artist / Filmmaker

Melanie Manchot is a London based visual artist who works with photography, film and video as a performative and participatory practice. Her projects often explore specific sites, public spaces or particular communities in order to locate notions of individual and collective identities. The mutability of subjectivity as well as the agency of the camera in creating a set of relations are key interests within Manchot’s ongoing enquiry into personhood and its representations.

The practice operates on the threshold of choreography and observation, of documentary modes and staged scenarios or performances – working with an economy of gestures to articulate relations orchestrated by and around the camera.

Manchot’s work has been shown nationally and internationally including exhibitions at Hayward Gallery, London; Towner Art Gallery, Eastbourne; Bloomberg Space, London; Whitechapel Gallery, London; MAC/VAL, Musee d’Art Contemporain, Paris; The Photographers’ Gallery, London; The Brooklyn Museum, New York; The Australian Museum of Photography, Sydney; The Courtauld Institute, London; Museum Folkwang, Essen and as part of Nuit Blanche, Paris. She is the recipient of many awards including the Oriel Davies Award 2012.

Manchot received her MA in Fine Art Photography from the Royal College of Art in 1992. Until 2005, she was a lecturer at many UK art colleges including Goldmsiths College, London, The University of the Arts, London and she continues to contribute to conferences and symposia internationally.

    Twenty-six species of the insect family Lampyridae, commonly known as fireflies, have been identified in the foothills of Appalachian Ohio. For a brief moment at the very end of their lives, nineteen of these species communicate with silent, bioluminescent displays of wildly diverse flash patterns and colors – a kaleidoscopic procession of light varying in precise accordance to habitat, season and time of night.
