I was familiar with Mark Jenkins‘ work seeing the occasional “person” leaning, against a wall at Frieze or hugged by a bear  at Volta, as well as his molded tape sculptures of babies, people and animals, but what I didn’t know was that these hyperealistic human sculptures—stuffed and dressed versions of the tape figures—also appear on city streets, making them that much more amazing. The Embed Series as these are called, have resulted in some people calling the police. You can see some humorous (yet understandable) reactions, in the video below.
