More about this artwork:

This sculpture depicts transsexuals Buck Angel and Allanah Starr and is part of Quinn’s body of work studying people who have chosen to redefine their outward identity using extensive surgery. “In this double portrait, the striking pair stands nude, side-by-side, feet shoulder-width apart, hands clasped. Together this heroic and empowered couple suggest a contemporised creation myth: a modern day Adam and Eve story celebrating the loss of innocence as expressed through the radical options for self expression in the 21st century.”

- Joachim Pissarro and Mara Hoberman, Reality Show
