The Golden Ass

July 31, 2008

Street artist Mark Jenkins makes, among other things, awesome human sculptures out of tape and then dresses them and puts them in public places. His latest project is The Golden Ass. In an area of Barcelona packed with “golden statue” type street performers, he constructed a sculpture that looked like a human in a horse costume. Everyone who encountered it assumed it was a performer being incredibly still.

He writes:

“…it’s much easier to make pretend people than to pretend to be a sculpture all day.”
