Mark Manders

°1968, Volkel (NL) – lives and works in Ronse (BE)

Since 1986, Mark Manders has developed an on-going project, consisting of sculptures, installations and architectural plans, which he describes as a “Self-Portrait as a Building”. As the title suggests, his artistic practice seems an attempt to translate individual identity, such as personal emotions and ideas, into sculptural spaces through objects and text. Manders makes use of found objects, including brick walls, tables, chairs and raw wood, which often reoccur often throughout his oeuvre.

Mark Manders has had numerous solo exhibitions, including shows at S.M.A.K., Ghent; Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; and the Dallas Museum of Art. His work has also been shown in several major group exhibitions at venues such as Solomon R. Guggenheim, New York; MoMA, New York; and Louvre, Paris. In 2013 Manders was selected to represent the Netherlands at the 55th Venice Biennial and he participated at documenta 11 in Kassel in 2002.

His work is present in many important public collections, such as MoMA, New York; Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; Dallas Museum of Art, Dallas; and Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam.
