How to escape loneliness and invisibility? Conceived as an answer to her own life story, Manifest is a self-fictional work through which Mona Sharma tries to free herself from her past. Deliberately fragmented, like a dream, the graphic narrative is built around the force of certain strong themes and images. The main character, portrayed as the artist herself, embarks on a mysterious existential quest. Playing on her personal invisibility (physical, racial and economic), Sharma imagines her avatar turning into a shadow in order to take advantage of this invisibility. Supreme androgynous beings resembling Hindu gods with faces reminiscent of the beauty icons of her childhood accompany her to imaginary lands. The power of nature in the images is intended to evoke both its beauty and human fragility.
