Mark Jenkins: Go Figure!

18.6.12



American artist Mark Jenkins's urban interventions are street-smart—in the truest sense of the word.
Jenkins' practice of street art is to use the "street as a stage" where passersby become actors. Many of his installations have resulted in intervention by the authorities whom he also regards as actors. 

Jenkins creates and sets free a colorful cast of characters by way of clear tape casts: the homeless, kids, vagrants, polar bears, and horses (to name but a few) all take their place in the urban space, while interacting with the surrounding buildings and public places that provide the context and set the stage.
