Menck’s latest solo exhibition which opened on 5 April at the Erdmann Contemporary signals a shift in this established mid-career painters’ development. Acknowledged as one of South Africa’s finest painters, Menck is also one of a handful of painters who have specialised in the genre of self-portraiture. A career highlight came in 2014 with her inclusion in the Paula Modersohn-Becker Museum exhibition, Sie. Selbst. Nackt. (She. Herself. Naked) showing alongside, Marina Abramovic, Louise Bourgeois, Imogen Cunningham, Ana Mendieta, Yoko Ono, Catherine Opie, Jenny Saville, & Francesca Woodman amongst others. The exhibition closes on 8 May.
