Marc Quinn

Marc Quinn makes art about what it is to be a person living in the world – whether it concerns man’s relationship with nature and how that is mediated by human desire; or what identity and beauty mean and why people are compelled to transform theirs; or representing current, social history in his work.

Marc Quinn has designed this sculpture to be an extension of his ongoing Flesh Paintings series (2011 – present). He has chosen to wrap the rhino in images of flesh in order to take a strong stance against barbarity. Through the work, Quinn is exploring and raising for discussion ideas of desire and repulsion, contradiction and moral paradox.
