New sculptures by leading contemporary artist Marc Quinn will go on display in this major exhibition in the spirit of John Soane: the man, the collector, the collection. Marc Quinn: Drawn from Life will see a series of ethereal fragmentary sculptures, made in collaboration with his partner, a dancer, placed among the multiple antique casts and sculptures that fill the Museum. These new works, created from life casts and fabricated in fibreglass, connect the classical language of the fragment to the present, revealing its resonance with contemporary life.
Quinn has long been inspired by Sir John Soane’s collection of historic fragments and Drawn from Life will explore Quinn’s fascination with the subject and give insight into the artist’s affinity with Soane’s aesthetic and interests.
