2023 Manor Art Prize St.Gallen

25 November 2023 – 11 February 2024, Kunstmuseum St.Gallen


The performance artist and dancer Juliette Uzor (*1992) is the winner of the Manor Art Prize St.Gallen 2023. For her first solo exhibition at Kunstmuseum St.Gallen she has created a new performance using the exhibition space as a stage. Based on the essay Über das Marionettentheater, by the German writer Heinrich von Kleist, Uzor has arranged the choreography and designed a wallpaper to cover the walls. The wallpaper creates the setting for her performances and also functions as an installation in its own right. The exhibition is activated by Uzor’s choreography and the performers.
