Mark Manders
Artist Talk

On the occasion of the exhibition The Absence of Mark Manders at Woning Van Wassenhove, MDD is organizing a conversation between Mark Manders and Angelique Campens in the Kerselare Chapel designed by Juliaan Lampens.

Since 1986 Manders has been working on the ongoing project Self-Portrait as a Building. By continually recycling, modifying, and creating new arrangements of favoured configurations and objects – human figures, animals, furniture, and architectural elements – Manders expands the limits of this decades-long conceptual self-portrait.

Angelique Campens is a Belgian art historian, writer, educator, and curator. Her work focuses on the interplay between sculpture and architecture in the 20th and 21st centuries, with an emphasis on sculptural concrete (béton brut) and the integration of sculpture in public spaces. She has worked with international museums and public art venues such as the Whitney Museum, Kulturprojekte Berlin, Fondazione Sandretto, Bozar, and Wiels. Her writings have appeared in various catalogs and magazines, including Taschen's Art Now Vol. 4, Abitare, Domus, Sculpture Journal, and Aspect. In 2007-2008, she served as a Curatorial Fellow at the International Study Program (ISP) of the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York. In 2010, she published her first monograph on the architecture of Belgian modernist Juliaan Lampens.
