Delicts Opus #36 Mark Jenkins
But what is this man doing lying in a puddle, colorful balloons floating above him?
The American artist Mark Jenkins invests the city with sculptures on a human scale. A true expert in scenography, he creates disturbing encounters between models and passers-by: installed in the public space, his human-clones do not fail to arouse amusement, anxiety, shock... to create a "social reality-altering experiment".
Impactful and unusual, tragic or humorous, Mark Jenkins' hyperrealistic installations are spectacular in their ability to make us hesitate between fiction and reality.
