Mark Jenkins – Street Installations

Posted on by

MEDIA ROOTS- Mark Jenkins’s work with inserting the human form into settings that are jarring and unsettling- like digging through a garbage can, dead face down in a riverbank, or a suicidal girl atop a billboard,  calls into question the relationship human beings have with each other in big cities. Hundreds of people walk busily by his displays and don’t give them a second look. What does that say about our society? Nonetheless, his art is extremely provocative and fun to follow.
