Mark Jenkins: Lost Child
15 May 2008
Published To

Mark Jenkins installed the Lost Child on the street of Malmo in 2008. He often remarks that actors will identify with his sculptures based on their own life experiences. "It is natural for the actors to names the pieces. There is a personal relationship, but the pieces are still singular. Actors project onto the piece, and that’s fine. I don’t want to have anything to do with the projection. It’s like their reality has been warped and they ask “is this art or not art?” I don’t want them to think “I am seeing a Mark Jenkins work” then dismiss it. It loses its potency when it is identified." -Mark Jenkins (Interview, November 22nd, 2013)
