Mark Jenkins and Rero are two of the most important contemporary urban artist, best-known and highly appreciated worldwide. Both their works, although using different techinics and languages, have the same energy and forcefulness for context interactions and communication with the public.
The hyper-realistic sculptures of people, animals and objects by one side and the words, phrases and geometrical primitive on the other side, increase, at the same time, the perception of the observer. The Jenkin’s surreal sculptures give us an unusual thought on social and politic themes, on the other side the Rero’ site art, denying the images and bringing out the language of contradiction in public spaces or in natural wild landscape.
Mark Jenkins and Rero are back to Wunderkammern in Milan some years after their solo exhibitions in Rome. The two artists present the evolution of their artistic research in relation to the concept: Rules of Engagement.
Building on these concepts, the artists explore the mechanisms of the formalisation of emotions in our contemporary culture. For the show a series of mixed media artworks will be exhibited, as well as some four-handed installations developed jointly by the two artists.
