Arsenal Art Contemporain is privately owned by Anne-Marie and Pierre Trahan. It is a massive, modern facility that boasts their collection of art, and showcases installations of artists. Until May 8th, Mark Jenkins presents his body of work at the centre. He creates life size images of people. Jenkins uses tape and wraps his live subjects with it to form the mold and it’s not grey tape either, but the hard stuff, scotch! Afterwards he dresses them in the appropriate attire and voila the art is complete! Visitors will recognize the figures and enjoy Jenkins’s creative edge.
Here are some of his works from the vernissage.
Arsenal Art Contemplation is located at 2020 Rue William. Mark Jenkin’s show Remix runs until May 8. For details, click HERE.
