Mark Manders - Empty Kingdom - Art Blog
"Sometimes my work also has literal connections to archeology, or rather to history. In A Place Where My Thoughts Are Frozen Together, I set out to attach a human femur to a coffee cup. I thought it was interesting how the cup has gradually acquired a handle during its evolutionary process. I ended up giving the femur a small raised bump so that, together, the cup and the bone could hold a sugar cube. It looks like something has grown out from inside the bone in a way comparable to the relatively slow process whereby the handle of the coffee cup evolved. I think it's beautiful how both of them, powerless and armless, hold the sugar cube." -Mark Manders, Ronse, Belgium

Photographs are windows to another world and as such have a magical quality to them. In my new work Realm I have created digitally altered photographs, where the familiar place of the home becomes a portal into mythical realm." -Carolyn Lefley, Photographer, London
