Per Maning was born in 1943 in Oslo (NO). He lives and works in Oslo (NO).
As yet largely unknown in France, where however his work was presented at a recent Video evening at the Centre Pompidou, Per Maning is one of the most famous Norwegian artists of his generation. His introspective works carry out a subtle parallel between animals and the place of mankind amongst them. Working exclusively in photography and video, his work has been compared to that of Munch (Munch Museum 2006) with whom he shares a certain number of figures.
