Dutch artist Mark Manders’ first solo exhibition in Japan is marked by this catalogue. His acclaimed works are based on the concept of "self-portrait as a building", in which his sculptures and objects are placed in multiple rooms of an entire building. His large installations are a construction of the unique world of "Mark Manders", a fictional artist of the same name, in a self-portrait consisting of numerous works that invoke complex emotions, distort the sense of time, and encourage introspection.

Texts are by Douglas Fogle (curator), Midori Matsui (art critic), and Yoshimi Zhensai (curator of the Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo).
