Ilan Manouach

Belgian artist, born 1980, based between Athens, Brussels and Helsinki. Ilan Manouach was educated at ESA Saint-Luc (École supérieure des arts) in Brussels and at DAI (Dutch Art Institute) in Arnheim, and he currently holds a PhD researcher position at the Aalto University in Helsinki. He is a conceptual comics artist, and his work has international ramifications. His edition in the LAND collection is inspired by the artist’s project ’Shapereader’, in which he created comics for visually impaired users - a landscape was transformed into a tactile narrative, that now has been revisited and transformed into a two dimensional art piece
