| | About Hypermobility | |

Mandem is a working team of artists, one of whom lives with the genetic disorder Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS) that causes failure of connective tissue. The Hypermobility series recenters that disability as a form of beauty via Mandem's signature approach to the classical realist tradition of figure painting. Using studio models diagnosed with connective tissue disorders, such as EDS, the series captures moments where joints hyperextend or dislocate and the body moves into broken-seeming, impossible configurations. Mandem's technique-oriented mixed media/oil paintings explode the line between medical documentation and art. This project began during Mandem's artist residency at the Associazione Culturale Il Palmerino (Florence, Italy). Hypermobility has exhibited in Italy, England, Canada, and the United States.

Mandem is fronted by media-flexible painter Maize Arendsee (MFA, Studio Art), with co-artists/studio assistants Moco and Kitsuko Steinman-Arendsee.
