Fabien Castanier Gallery is excited to present a solo exhibition for American artist Mark Jenkins, From Here to Nowhere. The show will be held in both of our gallery locations, beginning with the Progressive Art Brunch event in Little Haiti on Sunday October 13th and continuing with a subsequent opening reception in Wynwood on Saturday October 19th. This will be the second solo exhibition for the artist at the gallery.
With biting wit and an eye for the absurd, Mark Jenkins presents a new series of provocative sculptures for his latest solo exhibition. Each piece conveys a larger story, whether a commentary on society or a critique of contemporary culture, the only true meaning behind each tableau is interpreted through the viewers’ perspective – unique and often variable to the individual. This interaction between the audience and artwork continues to drive the “performance” aspect of his hyper-realistic figures, and for the first time ever, he has created a truly interactive and immersive experience for his audience. In the gallery’s Little Haiti space, From Here to Nowhere will feature a performative installation entitled “Molecule”, which will allow viewers to interact and “play” with the artist’s sculptures.
