Mark Manders has, since 1986, been working on a monumental series, “Self Portraits as a Building”, which now defines his practice and his career. These, as the title suggests, are Manders’ attempt to map out his own identity through objects and text. The series includes a wide stylistic range of sculptures, installations, and drawings; the way in which Manders amasses and presents materials has been compared to physical manifestation of sentences, narratives, and language. His sculptures and installations are assemblages of figural elements, resembling parts of human bodies or animals, with more abstract and geometric forms. Manders uses a combination of found materials including household furniture, archaeological fragments, raw wood, and architectural pieces.
