But what is this man doing lying in a puddle, colored 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 mannequins and passers-by: installed in the public space, his human clones do not fail to arouse amusement, anguish, shock... It is indeed, for him, a question of creating a "social experiment of alteration of reality".
Striking and unusual, tragic or humorous, Mark Jenkins' hyperrealistic installations are spectacular in their ability to make us hesitate between fiction and reality.
