Mark Manders, b.1968

Reduced Summer Garden Night Scene (Reduced to 88%)2002

Objects by Mark Manders often appear to be made from some other material than what seems to have been used. What look like found objects, may in fact have been handmade. Manders often uses reduction of scale in his works; shrinking them to 88% of the actual or real world proportions.

‘With several things, I made a small arrangement. I then laid a rope on these things like a drawing that had fallen prey to the force of gravity, as if the scene has been exposed to a melancholy gravitational pull.’ Mark Manders
