There'll be sweets in the Square Beaumarchais and the Sporting Monte-Carlo from 8 July to 19 August!
Laurence Jenkell lives and works in Vallauris, in the Alpes-Maritimes. Self-taught, she began working as an artist on her own, in the mid 1990s.
Gradually, her artistic research led her to try different techniques such as inclusions, dripping techniques, heating and moulding.
After numerous experiments with Plexiglas she became skilled at using and controlling the material. She developed a wrapping and twisting technique, enabling her to create sculptures in the shape of sweets, an idea she had been obsessed with for many years.
Laurence Jenkell's unique work is on display in Monaco from 8 July to 19 August 2013 in the following establishments of the Groupe Monte-Carlo SBM:
- Square Beaumarchais Hôtel Hermitage - Bonbon Summer Time (Summer Time Sweet) 2 m in Plexiglas and Bonbon Bronze au patine verte (Bronze Sweet with a Green Patina), 2.30 m.
- Hall of the Sporting MC: Bonbon Chromo Réglisse (Liquorice Chromo Sweet) (Plexiglas) 2.30 m
- Entrance of the Sporting MC: Bonbon Blanc (White Sweet) for the 150th anniversary of the SBM (Plexiglas), 2.20 m
For the 150th anniversary of the Société des Bains de Mer, the artist has personalised a work on the theme of this celebration.
