Alexander McQueen once said, “Fashion should be a form of escapism, and not a form of imprisonment” and “I find beauty in the grotesque, like most artists.” I use these two particular quotes for the remarkable artist Manon Kündig, who goes beyond commercialism and conventional beauty. Like costumer, dancer, and performance artist Nick Cave, Manon gives the wearer a pleasing overdose of material, colour, texture, and symbolism. Her clothes reflect the collages she creates, hybrid, hyper, and what I will call techno mythological. The individual tends to be removed and in place a divine sort of veiled creature, both relic and monstrous.
