Solo exhibition ~The Absence of Mark Manders~ by Mark Manders

The first solo exhibition at a Japanese art museum by Mark Manders, a Dutch artist who occupies a unique position in the contemporary art scene. In 1986, at the age of eighteen, he had a sort of epiphany that inspired his “Self-Portrait as a Building” concept. This has informed his work ever since, utilizing the form of a “building” for over thirty years as the framework for a self-portrait of an imaginary artist named, like the artist himself, “Mark Manders.” This is an extremely rare opportunity to fully appreciate the unique structure of Mark Manders’ work!
