MANDEM is the art name shared by Maize Arendsee (MFA, Studio Art) and their life-partner, Moco. With an academic background in mythology, critical theory, and gender/queer studies, MANDEM works across media and materials, intentionally destabilizing genre in terms of content and media, while exploring the visceral body, art history and religious iconography, and issues of gender and desire. MANDEM's work has been widely exhibited and published and has received numerous juror and publication awards. In 2016, Maize is teaching art at a university in Florence, Italy, where MANDEM also has a concurrent artist residency at the Associazione Culturale Il Palmerino and multiple European art exhibitions in the works.
