Marc Quinn expands the material and conceptual possibilities of sculpture. He emerged in the 1990s as part of the iconoclastic group of Young British Artists and is best known for his unusual, organic media: He’s made art from frozen flowers, slides of human DNA, and—in his self-portraits—his own frozen blood. Quinn has also embraced provocative subject matter and made monumental depictions of disabled and transgender subjects. Quinn studied art history at the University of Cambridge and has exhibited in London, New York, Paris, Milan, Seoul, Tokyo, and other cities. His work belongs in the collections of the Tate, the Centre Pompidou, the Stedelijk Museum, the Astrup Fearnley Museum of Modern Art, the Museum of Modern Art, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
