London: Mark Jenkins – BRD SHT

Mark Jenkins- BRD SHT

American artist Mark Jenkins returns to London for his third solo exhibition with Lazinc Gallery.
The show follows Jenkins’ success of his recent art installation, Project84, atop of London’s ITV building, raising awareness of male suicide.

Together with his collaborator, Sandra Fernandez, Mark Jenkins creates sculptural street installations that take the form of life-sized bodies, often interacting with the surrounding environment.
The physical casting process ordinarily uses either Mark or Sandra’s own bodies, essentially cloning themselves out of many layers of sellotape to create dark humoured and often sinister sculptures and place them within the public space. The work is intended to explore the conventional process in which we experience and view artwork and the pedestrian boundaries between art and life.

“BRD SHT, the show’s title, nods to a license plate in the film Brewster McCloud. In the film, it was a murderous substance and while I understand here in the UK it’s good luck, for me I’ve always thought about the frequency birds do it as a condition for reducing weight to allow flight. It’s a useful metaphor to understand that our own ability to sustain flight mentally is a matter of reducing our own emotional baggage, or shit if you will.” – Mark Jenkins

The exhibition features nine sculptures, three canvases and works on paper, as well as an installation on the gallery front of a fisherman figure hanging from the balcony.

Streets: Paris Nuit Blanche 2014 – Part 3

Swoon - Nuit Blanche Paris 14

For the last instalment of our Nuit Blanche  coverage  in Paris dedicated to Street Art, Swoon covered the walls of former Massena train station. The installation refers to the Motherhood theme, and her intricate lace paper cut-outs highlight the fragility and beauty of life.

French artist L’Atlas adorns the walls with his signature geometric typography, while American artist Mark Jenkins put his tape figures in surprising locations and situations throughout the city: a girl is dangling her head on a fishing line from a balcony, a hooded man seems locked to the gate of a building, much to the awkward looks from the residents.

French stencil artist Yz painted a large floral mural using only natural material like wood, paper, zinc and black ink.
