Mark Jenkins and Rero
Rules of Engagement
opening Wednesday, September 20, 6.30 – 9.30 pm
Wunderkammern, Via Ausonio 1A, Milan

Mark Jenkins and Rero are back to Wunderkammern and they present the evolution of their artistic research in relation to the concept: Rules of Engagement. The artists explore the mechanisms of the formalisation of emotions in our contemporary culture. Mark Jenkins (USA, 1970) is famous for his hyperrealistic sculptures of persons, animals and objects placed in the urban space. The sculptures take on positions or create situations which are emblematic and surreal, pushing the passers-by to become real actors. Rero’s (France, 1983) work is placed in between urban art and conceptual art, and it is based on language. Influenced by sociology and philosophy, the artist reveals his message through sentences or words which are crossed by a thick black line.
