Manon is a swiss-dutch photographer, born in 1991, who lives and works in Lausanne.
Starting from sensations and emotions she can’t
associate with words only, Manon Wertenbroek
literally creates her images building subjects on
different levels and photographing them in the
form of still life or portraits. In this need to give
back materiality to an inner energy, complex
and unstable, the groundwork of sculpture occupies
a vital part: with the help of elements like paper,
clay and pigments, these fragile forms are temporary
anchor points, physical and spatial in her research;
the finalization of the process is played in the second
half, and the way the established space for
expression is framed and emotions are confined.
