Carol Jane Mancke

Carbon Carats

15th May - 3rd July



Carol Jane Mancke’s work invites viewers to look beyond the accepted surface of things, experience things differently and perhaps recover openness to possibility, imagination and magic.


Mancke likes to interfere with the social fabric of particular environments. She tries to create opportunities where physical experience and spatial/social interpretation overlay so that the viewer moves without thinking between these two frames of reference - the immediate and the mediated.


After more than twenty years in architecture practice, Mancke started the art and architecture collaborative, Machina Loci, in 2004. She has degrees from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the University of California Berkeley and Central St Martins College of Art and Design and is a Senior Lecturer at Kingston University.


Recent shows include, Mancke’s solo exhibition Get Over It, at the Mid Pennine Arts Gallery in 2010. Her work Toge Time/Pass Time was featured in the Echigo Tsumari Art Triennial, Niigata Japan 2009 and her urban intervention, Palimpsest Public House, took place in the public realm of the Barbican as part of Open House London 2008. Shedding House, a project Mancke designed in collaboration with a group of young Tokyo artists, featured in the Echigo Tsumari Art Triennial 2006.
