Declan Jenkins

Endometry of the Green Epoch

 

Royal Academy Schools student prize winner and recipient of the Arts Club Aldeburgh Beach Bursary

 

Endometry of the green epoch is a farcical re-imagining of Yves Klein’s

Anthropométrie de l'Époque bleue.

 

Declan Jenkins stages bizarre re-enactments of grand works and moments in Art History. Part historian, part satirist he works across a variety of media. Gauchely erudite, his work looks to subvert the language of art criticism, and in the process produce an Art of extreme self-consciousness, in which grand gestures are performed with clownish awkwardness.
