Ghost XVI is part of a series where the work on fabrics and drapery carries a reflection on the body and its absence. Manon Pellan’s drawings always leave room for the whiteness of the paper: it highlights the absence of the motif the artist chose, and its poetry, just like the body’s partial absence.

“Our vision of fabric in general and clothing in particular is very ambiguous,” explains Manon Pellan. “It has a singular place for all of us, it can be a trivial object that we take off carelessly, a fetish that we store preciously, or a rag that we throw away without any guilt. Fabric evokes our relationship to the daily life, intimacy, and the body.”
