Melanie Manchot

Visual artist/filmmaker Manchot employs film, video and sound to form sustained enquiries into our individual and collective identities. Performance-to-camera, reconstruction, participation and location-based research are recurring methodologies. Her films operate on the cross-section of documentary and narrative fiction to investigate how fact, storytelling and observation offer strategies for speaking about our shifting place in an increasingly mediated world.

"Stephen" is her first feature film. "Stephen", Liverpool Biennnial, UK, 2023; "Stephen", Sheffield DocFest International Competition, 2023; "Liquid Skin", Urbane Künste Ruhr, Witten, 2023; "Alpine Diskomiks", Parafin, London, 2022; "Black Snow White Out", Museum Lumen, Italy, 2021; "Open Ended Now", MACVAL, Paris, France; "Art Night", London (2018). Her films have been shown at film festivals including Locarno, Raindance, Aesthetica, Kasseler DokFest.
