More about this artwork:

Quinn used traditional life casting techniques to create a mould of Kate Moss dressed in a cloak by designer Alexander McQueen, which has been filled with water and frozen. Housed in a temperature controlled glass case the sculpture gradually disappears during the time of its display, leaving nothing but a pool of water. It is maintained in the gallery at just below freezing point. The sculpture eventually melts away, “leaving the work to become a visual metaphor for the transience of fame based only on physical attraction”.
