This May, American artist Mark Jenkins returns to London for his third solo exhibition with Lazinc, his first in the gallery’s flagship Mayfair space.

 

Jenkins recently made headline news when collaborating with the charity CALM to create a harrowing art installation. Project84 was created to raise awareness for male suicide, with the installation seeing 84 ‘male’ life-sized sculptures posed atop of London’s ITV studio building.

 

The artist’s installation merge the line between art and life, with his sculptures often interacting with their surrounding environments.

 

BRD SHT will be made up of nine sculptures, three canvases and works on paper, the exhibition will also include an installation on the gallery front of a fisherman figure hanging from the balcony. The shows inspiration comes from the film Brewster McCloud and the clever use of a metaphor which is closely related to the title of the show…

 

“BRD SHT, the show’s title, nods to a license plate in the film Brewster McCloud. In the film, it was a murderous substance and while I understand here in the UK it’s good luck, for me I’ve always thought about the frequency birds do it as a condition for reducing weight to allow flight. It’s a useful metaphor to understand that our own ability to sustain flight mentally is a matter of reducing our own emotional baggage, or shit if you will.” - Mark Jenkins

 

Lazinc are incredibly excited to have Mark Jenkins back in the gallery, bringing with him a variety of his well-known characters into his latest exhibition…
