BERLIN · Gestalten is proud to present the first solo show in Germany by the renowned American artist Mark Jenkins, who uses ordinary packing tape to create life-size human or animal forms in 'Glazed Paradise'. 

Jenkins is best known for his clever installations of these startlingly lifelike tape sculptures in urban and natural spaces as well as indoor environments such as cafeterias, toilets, and art galleries. this expert staging of his work, especially his clothed human figures, provokes various—often strong—reactions from passersby and expands his interventions into powerful performances.

the exhibition will include new sculptures made specifically for this opening and limited additions from pervious work. included will be a small photography exhibition which provide a strong insight into Jenkins's work and exactly how his work interacts (and intervenes) with our daily environment.

Gestalten Space invites you to theopening of 'Glazed Paradise' on JAN 19, 2012 at 18:30. and don’t miss the opportunity to hear a talk by Mark Jenkins in which he will give personal insight into the origins of and creative process behind his tape sculptures.
