Galerie m Bochum is showing a 9-channel lm installation by the German artist Melanie Manchot (b. 1966), who today lives in London. Back in 2008, Manchot began filming her daughter, then 11 years old, at regular intervals with a Super 8 camera. The project “11/18” ended when the girl turned 18. The resulting films document the girl’s progress from child to adult. In the artwork, nine CRT monitors positioned around the room show sequences shot during this seven-year process of development.
In addition the exhibition shows three photographs Melanie Manchot has taken from her daughter Billie in 2017. The are titled "Looking Back".
