About
Born in 1983 in Biel/Bienne, Manon Kündig studied at l’Ecole d’Arts Appliqués de La Chaux-de-Fonds in Switzerland. Afterwards she entered the Fashion Department at the Antwerp Royal Academy of Fine Arts, where she graduated with honour in 2012. Her work shows a fascination for the human kind in general, popular culture, passions of all sorts, craftsmanship, digital media and sarcasm. It is based on technical and practical research, which among others resulted in inflatable latex garments, hand-marbled silk, sculptural shoes and maniacal ornamentation. Manon has an ambiguous relation to fashion, driven to catharsis by the all girl collective LVMM, with which she performs in happenings. Their work deals with happiness and exposure, and blurs the relation between artist and public, stage and crowd.
