Beyond Limits 2014, Sotheby's at Chatsworth picture
Overview:

The ninth incarnation of ‘Beyond Limits’ at Chatsworth House opened today with Marc Quinn making a return appearance for the fifth year.

'Bermuda Triangle' is a monumental bronze shell, reproduced from a seashell, using a high-tech 3D printing system. The work is taken from a series of bronzes entitled 'The Archaeology of Art’, which includes 'Spiral of the Galaxy’, exhibited at last year's ‘Beyond Limits’. Of the shells, Quinn has said, “to me they are like the archaeology of art, a beautiful, perfect, symmetrical structure made by a tiny brainless creature without a spinal column. They are like a sculpture of time, the spiral a record of the time it has taken for the shell to be made, and the polished mirrored surface always reflecting the present moment.”
