Artist Places Mannequins Around City To Mess With People

Sculptor Mark Jenkinsย has reached a whole new level of trolling while calling it art. I wonder how many times cops were called?

    I don’t see the humour in these!

  2. Sophie June 23, 2019

    I do worry about wasted police time from concerned citizens, but still think they are very thought provoking!

  3. Coral June 23, 2019

    I don’t know what to think!

  4. Brent June 23, 2019

    I find many of these to be abusive and triggering.

  5. Coral June 23, 2019

    Hey Brent, I agree. It’s time to go.

    Very disturbing.

    Amazing creativity, profound concepts, well done!

  8. Pedram June 23, 2019

    Incredibly Creative. Bravo!

    Nothing funny about these, wonder how many time the police were called on them.

  10. Karen June 23, 2019

    Where is this? Itโ€™s not U.S.

    You’re not really an artist unless you take risks. Not all art is supposed to make you feel safe, warm, or amused. A lot of it is meant to challenge the viewer.

    What if someone was actually in danger, and people just thought they were a mannequin?

  13. Heathermk June 23, 2019

    What city is this in?

    not surprised to read the complaints from the virtue signalers

    Astounding paradigm-shifting works!

    Why are so many bothered by this? I find it funny, thought-inducing and admire the work.

    Awesome. If you don’t find it funny, you don’t have a sense of humor. Creative, and well done.

    almost pissed myself laughing, brilliant!

    I can see were it would be concerned to some like the man face down with the balloons in the water but most are great I like the one with trash around him that is thought provoking in a good way and there are much humor

  23. Nose Farah Tu June 23, 2019

    Too bad they aren’t real people. It would be a much more emotional feeling to see them.

  24. Anonymous June 23, 2019

    Definitely not in the u.s. if it were they would just steal the mannequins instead of call the cops

    Take a look at US artist Terry Allen’s sculpture works. These are directly influenced by his public art bronze sculptures. They have wit, humor, mystery and are thought provoking. All good things for an artist to provide for people.

    I am triggered by all the crybabies commenting here. I think it’s creative and fun.

  27. Anonymous June 23, 2019

    I found these to be very creative. I understand the concern about false police reports, but perhaps the artist notified the emergency center; If not after the first report was investigated, the authorities would know it was not real.

    I like it. However, Karen doesn’t approve.

  29. Anonymous June 24, 2019

    I don’t see the art in these.

    For those asking what city these are taken in, one photo has a New York City bin in it, one has uk road signs in it and another has a uk blue plaque on a building usually meaning something of historic significance occurred there. I think this story might be bogus

    This was awesome until i read the comments. Now i just feel sorry for everyone who thought the big bang theory was funny and these pic’s were not.

    Stupid. Even more disturbing if you think these are funny. I feel sorry for you.

    It’s called conceptual art. It’s not everyone’s cup of tea but just as valid as any other art form. Calling it sad and useless shows you people up as sad and stupid.

  35. Beth June 24, 2019

    Taking this way too seriously.

  36. Steve June 24, 2019

    Amazingly creative, so original… I really enjoyed the photos … an obvious large amount of work went into this project… I tip my hat to all involved…. Brilliant !!

    MARK JENKINS he is from Alexandria, Virginia, United States

    some are thought provoking some are amusing but how can a figure with a baseball bat hiding round a corner or lying in shallow water,most defonitely not fun nor is it art.

  39. T.J. Kiernan June 25, 2019

    This has got to be somewhere in Europe, the U.S. cities would be too uptight for this . This is what art truly is about , causing people to question reality and see things in a different way.

  40. Lynne hurd June 25, 2019

    Personally liked it, very amusing as well as thought provoking. Itโ€™s art at its most original, intended to cause the sort of dialog we are participating in. Well done the artist ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

    I see there’s too many “poor baby”s here… Get a life!

    Wish I’d thought of this!

    Half are funny and I’d be proud to have done them myself. About half are seriously stressful for most people though. Seeing a potential suicide or someone who’s surely dead is scary. The one face-down in the river I’d jump in to save before taking the same to see if they’re still breathing.

  44. Anonymous June 26, 2019

    Some of these are not funny. A dead person floating in the water? A man about to jump off a building, or a guy with a baseball bat??! These are not silly pranks, these could waste officials times by people calling them in.

    I wonder if you had anything to do with someone taking a ๐Ÿ’ฉ on Elm & Kansas.

    I love most of them theyโ€™re brilliant but yes to several that are just stupid and juvenile!

  48. Johnny X'e June 29, 2019

    As somebody who has been in these situations in real life these are not amusing. These are sad and stupid. And mocking those in need. And so often when people are struggling and in need they are simply met with apathy.

  49. Anonymous July 2, 2019

    I think these are great, but I also have a dark sense of humor…

    Art is supposed to make you feel! Well done!
