Item description for Marc Quinn by Germano Celant, Darian Leader & Miuccia Prada...
Through his use of such unorthodox materials as bread, blood, excrement, silicon, ice, and, more recently, plants and flowers, Marc Quinn addresses the fundamental themes of our existence. His analysis of the physical nature of the body and the mysteries associated with it are expanded in this novel kaleidoscope of a book. Containing images of classical sculptures, old paintings, scenes of war, disasters, car and plane crashes, portraits of disabled people, works by other contemporary artists, scientific photographs, and a selection of works and photographs by Quinn himself, this book constitutes a fascinating, associative approach to a body of work which concerns questions that often have no answers. Included are critical essays, an interview with the artist, and conversations between him and the people portrayed in his sculptures. Essays by Germano Celant, Darian Leader. Foreword by Miuccia Prada.
