Mark Jenkins brought sculpture to street art and he’s known for these surprising installations in urban spaces. His new book, The Urban Theater, documents his often disturbing street installations and also includes pics of viewers’ responses and interactions. Work from Jenkins oeuvre has been exhibited in Lazarides Galleries and the Kunsthalle Wien, among others but his art was made for the street. Jenkins says his sculptures only become complete for him when they interact with their urban environments and the people within them. But these poor people had no idea what they were experiencing, as you can see from their reaction. You can get The Urban Theater here.
