Claude Cahun

Nantes, FR, 1894 - Saint Helier, Jersey Island, UK, 1954

Claude Cahun was a Surrealist artist who, together with her half-sister and life partner Marcel Moore, anticipated discussions on topics of extreme relevance in contemporary society, such as gender and identity. In her practice she used a variety of media: photography, writing, collage, sculpture, disguise, transformation, performance and theatre.

The majority of her works are part of the collections of the Musée d'arts de Nantes (France) and of the Jersey Heritage (UK).
