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 investigation of personhood and its representations.
In 2015 Peckham Platform exhibited Twelve, a multi-channel video installation by Manchot and our first exhibition shown over two spaces – our main gallery at the time on Peckham Square and the vacant high-street shop adjoining the gallery.
This work was also part of the 2016 Peckham Platform Retrospective exhibition, a timeline of all 20 artists commissions realised by Peckham Platform between 2010 – 2016.
