L'onde d'une ombre

The preferred medium of Manon Bellet (*1979 in Vevey) is paper that she uses in both her installations and her slow-paced video works. Through the artist’s almost invisible geste, delicate, transparent and light sensitive papers are transformed with the help of light, heat and time. Bellet reminds us of the ephemeral nature of all things passing and the trace of memory they leave behind, like a “shadow of a point in time”.
This book accompanies the first institutional solo shows of Manon Bellet at Kunstmuseum Solothurn and Musée Jenisch, Vevey.
With texts by Patricia Bieder, Julie Enckell Julliard and Stéphanie Serra, as well as a conversation between Mathieu Copeland and the artist.
