Picks of the week

Melanie Manchot | White Light Black Snow

In echo of her previous works in choreography, Melanie Manchot's new film Cadence shows an aerial view of a black horse creating a pattern of footprints in white snow. Manchot also formally returns to photography for the first time in many years, presenting a series of photographs alongside the film. In many, scale is hard to discern, animals may or may not be alive or taxidermied, and we question what we are looking at, what is real and what is modelled, what is being photographed and what is represented.
