About

The still life as a genre in art emerged firstly during the Middle Ages and then became an important and common aspect of Western art practice. Stephanie Mann gives a contemporary twist to that tradition by the use of video and photography alongside large wall installations to expand the framing of her works beyond simply the canvas. Just as importantly, the artist incorporates her own body as part of the final work; fruit and other objects are heaped upon her face, sometimes tumbling down, other times creating a finely balanced arrangement from the objects and her body. A much-praised graduate of Edinburgh College of Art's Master's programme, this is Mann's first solo show in the UK where she will be presenting new work created especially for Summerhall.
