Jenkins' installations bring into play the relationship between artwork and visitor. Mark Jenkins attempt to question, provoke, and disturb with sculptures whose behaviours and gestures are strikingly similar to a human person. People are constantly surprised by the humanization of his characters, their pose and the way Mark Jenkins gives shape to their attitudes. Once these striking and unusual human clones are installed, they raise fun, fears or astonishment.

Jenkins presents a new body of hyperrealist work, encompassing a compelling series of unseen three-dimensional canvases and life-sized figures created exclusively in the UK.

The BRD SHT exhibition presents hyperrealist sculptures which have made Jenkins famous : life-sized silhouettes hidden under their hoods, conjoined twins by the top of the head or people leant on nothing looking like they want to lose their balance and fall into the unknown. Surprising tribute to Icarus, one of the masterpieces of the exhibition "The face of gravity" fall down to the floor, directly on its face, like a quite direct metaphor of our troubled times.

The artist's installations merge the line between art and life, with his sculptures often interacting with their surrounding environments. It might also be observed that Jenkins became immediately interested
